Where does HIV integrate into genome and when is it activated?

Hi,

I have two questions about HIV:

1) Is the HIV provirus always integrated at the same spot in the host
   cell's genome? If yes, where?

2) What exactly causes the provirus to become active and produce new
   particles -- is it the activation of the T-cell by antigen?

Thanks,
