Does this mean something is saved between boots so Monitor can be
switched off on boot & X start up?    (unlike old Windows where it
would fall back to LCD (lowest common denominator *g*) display)

Monitors can be switched off on boot or even when you start up X as
even switched off monitors should supply DDC data as the DDC circuit
receives its power from the graphics board.

Sounds great but probably broken with common server setups using a KVM?

Most KVMs today seem to pass DDC over nicely. Eventually the KVM
manufacturers have learned their lesson and caught on. After all
DDC has been around for a while.

Cheers,
Egbert.
