Stupid question...

When using the D7000 with the "kit lens" (AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR), under what circumstances do you ever switch the A-M (auto-manual, I presume) switch from "A" to "M"? The camera body has an AF-M (auto-focus / manual focus) switch. If you want to focus manually, do you have to switch *both* the body to M and the lens to M? If you want to use auto focus, do you have to switch both to A?

Like I said, stupid question, but I can't find the answer in the manual.
