This is a bug I've seen since first using eOS 0.4. Only solutions I have found to this are a) Configuring the monitors side by side instead of vertical, or b) Setting the external monitor to be primary (press the star icon in settings).
The idea would be to tell lightdm to use the same settings that you use for the monitors.
So, login into elementary with the external monitor connected, set up your displays the way you want in System Settings -> Displays (mark the external display as primary by clicking its star in the upper left corner). Save you configuration.
Now, copy the ~/.config/...
Instead of closing the lid of the laptop you can use the cycle display modes shortcut Super+p. On both of the laptops I use there is such a function key also.

The problem can be fixed by manipulating xrandr. You should in input these commands to double the pixels enabled in settings. Hopefully, this will fix the issue with scaling after changing resolutions.
xrandr --output DP-1 scale 2x2
xrandr --output DP-1 --scale 0.5x0.5
xrandr --output DP-1 --scale 1x1
The procedure, as posted by @Carlos, is confirmed to be working:

elementaryOS Hera 5.3.0-26-generic
VMware Workstation Player 15.5.1 build-15018445
Nvidia driver 340.107
