Sessions – what am I missing?

I can't figure out how to create my own sessions. How hard can it be? Not
very hard, I hope…

I have this laptop, and when I'm at home, I use my external screen and the
internal one is turned off (when both are turned on, the graphics card gets
too hot and the fans are at maximum speed all the time).
When I bring my laptop somewhere, I don't bring that external screen, so I
need to use the internal one.

If I forget to switch my window settings before leaving, I can't see
anything as soon as I log in, so I can't change it back (I probably could
in text mode, but I don't know how anyway).

So I want to save a ”use internal screen only-session” so that I can start
it from the login screen (which always use the internal screen), which I'm
pretty sure was possible in older versions of Ubuntu. I have 12.04 now, and
I can't really find a way to do this!
