comment Force startx to run X in a specific resolution and refresh Rate
For getting the Xorg.0.log, you mention you mostly use it from the terminal? So run startx one time and then cancel/kill it. Then from the terminal do 'sudo apt-get install pastebinit; pastebinit /var/log/Xorg.0.log'.

I think just appending the line 'xrandr --output VGA1 --mode 1024x768_60' into ~/.xinitrc ought to do it.

comment How do I make Update Manager stop opening automatically?
This makes it not update itself, but the GUI will still be popping up if anything else causes an update (e.g. like manually running apt-get update.)

There is, but this isn't the place to post it. There's a plethora of troubleshooting documents on how to solve X crash and GPU freeze issues.

Not sure this can be done with startx itself, but you can probably set up the appropriate xrandr command in an .xinitrc to do it.
