This fixed the issue for me. Second question: How can I disable LVDS by 
default, but still have the ability to enable it from xrandr? When I 
tried the "Disable" option, xrandr wouldn't do anything but complain 
about how LVDS didn't have any modes. When I tried the "Ignore" option, 
xrandr no longer sees LVDS. I am using xserver, btw.
