Something is turning disabled screens back on

I keep getting draft is being edited in another window messages (it's not - and tried other browsers) and if I add my garuda-inxi it just pops up 403 and won't post at all. (got partial inxi but still kicking 403 for things)

So I've been working on an xorg issue and discovered their might be something else Garuda specific going on as I've tested with Ubuntu and things work as expected...but in Ubuntu lol.

If I disable a screen something turns it back on and sets it to mirror a few seconds later. I've tried using the XFCE Display settings and arandr but the same thing happens. A few seconds after disabling a screen it's turned back on.

I've disabled the autorandr in /etc/xdg/autostart but can't find anything else that might be doing this. Who is the culprate?!

Garuda (2.6.3-2):

Could you try both of these from a live installer environment? It's the first time I've heard of these so it's possibly something that has changed on the installed system (e.g. something running in the background).

Both of what?

Both of the things you are trying that don't work, that I quoted.

The 403 is THIS the forums. I can't post the issue correctly because the site kicks back 403 if I post the whole garuda-inxi. i.e. a live image changes nothing.

As for the other thing I just tried from a live installer (Ubuntu) and trying the Garuda would require killing autoxrandr on startup. i.e. it's kinda set up to defeat the purpose.
