I have had the same issue on my mini Mac (which is going back to the
store this thursday, but that's a different story).
What helped for me is setting:
Option "MonitorLayout" "TMDS"
Without it, both the primary and the secondary head had a monitor type
of none. (TMDS is DVI-D for external flat panels, LVDS is for internal
laptop flat panels)
With this setting, at least the DVI panel should wake up, if you add CRT
behind the TMDS, your VGA output should also wake up.
Let me know if that helps any.
