I upgraded my monitor to a freesync and it's all really nice, a part from one SERIOUSLY annoying problem.

I turn my monitor off as well as my system, I regularly leave my system on and my monitor off. The problem is, if i turn my system on without the monitor being on (which I like to do regularly) it doesn't think there is a monitor attached and reverts to a default resolution completely trashing my desktop icons and window sizes.

I am aware that Display Port is PnP and that the whole power off visibility thing is a known issue, but surely there is some sort of work around?

I've tried to find the default screen resolution settings in the registry but not had any luck.

Has anyone found a solution to this?
