The community Taskforce initiative has now come to a close. Thanks to everyone who made thoughtful and genuine contributions to the website. All submissions will be kept publically available for the forseeable future for reference purposes.

We have 8 servers sharing a server cabinet. A KVM box enables each of these servers to share a common screen, keyboard and mouse. If a Mac is rebooted and is not selected as the "active" screen then it will default to a much lower resolution
This rates as an OS-X bug because the solution would be so simple: Place a checkbox in the Displays System Preference named "Force this resolution on reboot".
