Bug Description

Setting Display settings to mirrored or to disable the second graphics card monitor works but does not persist on reboot.
ATI Radeon Mobility 5470 HD

Mouse will move past the right side of the screen as if there was a 2nd display it could move into. Doing the steps below will fix this but the change does not persist on reboots.

Elementary OS Freya

System Settings > Displays > Enable 'Mirror Display' > Apply

This works but the change is not saved on reboot. I have to redo the steps again.

System Settings > Displays > 'Configure Display' on 2nd monitor (graphics card) > Disable 'Use This Display' > Apply

This works but the change is not saved on reboot. I have to redo the steps again.
