You can use AutoSizer to keep your windows at a specific size. It's not the perfect solution, but I'm not aware of any other way. From the website:

AutoSizer automatically resizes programs for you, keeping them at a specific size or keeping them maximized. One popular use is to keep Internet Explorer maximized when you go on the web. It works with most software programs, and supports maximizing to specific monitors on multi-monitor computers. Use the handy Always On Top system tray menu to quickly position specific programs above all others.

If that doesn't work you could also try out Sizer. It allows you to resize a window to one of a few predefined resolutions.

To save your icon positions, you can use DesktopOK . From Lifehacker:

Tiny application DesktopOK saves and restores your desktop icon positions—so your perfect icon layout won't get lost if your resolution changes when hooking to another monitor or playing a game.

have a look at PowerStrip, a powerful display and (multi)monitor utility which supports multiple profiles.

PowerStrip is shareware, try before you buy.
