If you launch everything with screen, you can suspend terminals and then recall them at any point. screen also has a list feature that shows you all the suspended screens.

linux.die.net/man/1/screen

tmux should also have some options but I can't speak to it for sure.

You can try first with byobu (byobu.co/) that is more or less a wrapper of screen with an easier learning curve and if you like it then try screen that usually it is already installed on most distros and therefore you can use it on almost any system.
