I have switched to Unity 2D now but it still auto logs in to the 3D desktop. Anyone know where I fix this?

Also, on both my desktop systems I seemed to be presented with a really crude login screen, whereas the laptop has the fancy lightdm screen. How do I fix that?

You can tweak lightdm config file by hand to load unity-2d as default session.
gksu gedit /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf
and change
user-session=ubuntu
to
user-session=ubuntu-2d
