Once you start the X server , you don't need to restart it again . When it starts it creates a
xstartup file , /tmp/x-lock file and a passwd file . If you want to use the same terminal everytime you start your machine , before you shut down you must remove the lock files associated with that terminal ( in your case :1 ) and kill the vnc server so that when you restart your machine it can find the screen :1 is not being used and create it
