    None of my apps remember to go into full screen mode when I reopen them.

    For example, I have Mail open and in full screen mode. I close it. When I go to reopen it, it opens in Desktop 1 in its default mode. BTW, this is occuring with ALL apps, not just Mail.

    I recently upgraded to an SSD drive and did a clean install. Prior to this change, my Lion and ML installations on the same computer always returned the apps to the previous state they were in before closing.

    Hopefully, this is a setting change somewhere because I would really like this function back. Any thoughts/ideas/suggestions would be appreciated.

    Mountain Lion has Resume disabled by default. Enable it in system preferences -> General. Your previous ML installation had the setting brought over from Lion.
