Is it possible that, when you boot with the projector attached, you also
need to adjust the resolution?

It may be that the windows didn't show up because you have a virtual
screen that is much bigger than your physical screen and the windows are
indeed "there" (on the virtual screen) but are located outside of the
currently active screen area.  I've seen this happen many times.  And a
quick way to test it is to scroll around with the mouse and "push" on
the screen edges -- your display should then "move around" within the
virtual screen area.
