Hi, I have the same problem:

When I set the slider to a certain setting, this setting will be remembered. But if I use the emergency keystroke alt + esc (because the screen is completely black for a film projection on a video projector), the settings are not stored and the computer starts up with a black screen as a result. It would be nice if the emergency keystroke setting could be remembered.

Thank you!
