matplotlib window layout questions


I have two questions regarding to the positioning of a mpl window (using WXAgg backend)

1-) How to create a maximized window, instead of me clicking on window to maximize it each time?

2-) I have two screens. Interestingly, my mpl windows tend to open on my small screen. How can I force mpl/ipython/WX/X-windows to open mpl windows on my 2nd and bigger monitor?
