.. also using the same resolution and refresh rate?

If you're using custom modelines, try dropping to a standard refresh
rate.  Or if your monitor and video card support DPMS, remove all
modelines from your config file, put option "dpms" in your Monitor
section, and let X determine a good refresh rate.
