I'd like to know if there's a possibility to disable the auto-detection of a specific monitor / output. 

I explain my case, i have three monitor & a KVM PCI-Passthrough setup for gaming. 

When i start my vm i turn off my principal monitor via a libvirtd hook and it switch to windows. 
My second screen have a KVM switch between arch GPU & Windows GPU 
Third screen only on arch. 

When i switch the KVM for the second screen, Xorg re-detect my primary screen and turn it On, but i can't see all my windows because the monitor is still switched on the Windows GPU. 

My arch GPU is a GTX980 running on proprietary drivers. 

Thank you 

Have a good day.
