    Is there any way to do this? I like to constantly have Mail, Safari, Chrome, Reeder, OmniFocus and Yep running in the background on my system, but I don't necessarily want all their windows to pop up every time I log in. Is there any way to set it so that these apps technically "open" when I log in, but don't pop up their main window until clicked on in the dock?

    Thanks!

    Thanks. Stupid iTunes still pops, but everything else works break. Breathtaking to boot and have all those apps fully running in under 18 seconds. I love SSD's.
