fc10 x fails to start when monitor turned off

I have fedora 10 installed and when my monitor is turned off the X session fails to start because it can not probe for settings. Is there a way to hard code the settings for x instead of letting them assign dynamically on boot?

You could try configuring X manually using system-config-display (or system-display-config --reconfig) and hopefully that will help resolve your problem.
