While looking for an answer, I found this article about troubleshooting hotkey problems. Maybe there's some info that'll help you.

You will need to use XRandR to enable and disable external monitors. Hook up the external monitor (or projector) and then use the System-> Preferences-> Displays applet to enable/disable it and set the resolution.
If you want more finite control over using your displays try googling "XRandR Ubuntu" or "XRandR Debian". Lots of good info out there about using XRandR in the command line if you are geeky enough to figure it out.
