Unhappy Setting Default Resolution in KDE 4.7


Does anyone know how to set the default desktop display resolution in KDE 4.7 ? As hard as I try I can't get my settings to save from one session to the next.. they always default to the highest for my graphics card.

If you're going to suggest editing my xorg file.. by default 4.7 does not have one. I went through the steps of generating one but I don't know how to specify resolution there.. if that is the only way of doing it.

A little help please?

Well, you can set the default resolution through the xorg.conf in the "Screen" section under the "Display" subsection.
For example, here is a snippet of my xorg.conf:
Code:
Section "Screen"
        Identifier      "Screen0"
        Device  "LaptopScreen" #System-specific
        Monitor "Generic"
        # Compositing manager
        Option  "RenderAccel"   "true"
        Option  "TripleBuffer"  "true"
        Option  "DPMS"  "true"
        DefaultDepth    24
        SubSection      "Display"
                Depth   24  #24-bits is the highest depth you can go. 32 Won't work
                Modes   "1280x700" #Here is where you specify the screen resolution
        EndSubSection
