It modifies the screen and projector resolutions in real time. No need to 
restart X, unless you've just modified your xorg.conf. Did you look at your 
xorg.conf and confirmed that there are several resolutions configured there? 
You should have a line in section "Screen", subsection "Display", like this 
Modes    "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600"

And then you should be able to cycle through these resolutions in X using CTRL 
ALT + and CTRL ALT -
