Question re DataGuard

I am new to Data Guard. I'm running Oracle EE on 64-bit Windows Server 2003. I understand that the command

SQL> alter database recover managed standby database disconnect;

begins the managed recovery process when the standby is first created. My question, does the managed recovery process persist through a restart of the standby database? I am assuming it does but don't know how to determine that. That is my second question, Is there a way other than querying the v$archived_log view to determine if the managed recovery process is in fact running? Lastly, what are the ramification, if any, of issuing the command if the managed recovery process has already been started. I just restarted the standby database (unfortunately I issued the command before testing the status of the archived logs, I suppose I could do it again) at which time I issued the command and the response was database altered. I haven't really been able to find an answer to this question anywhere.

Thanks in advance.
