    I shutdown with all applications closed.

    Whenever I reboot, I wan't Safari to open my home page... not restore the last window I had when I shutdown.

    Taking that tick out should stop safari reopening the last windows (and any other apps) and go straight to your home page

    have a look also in Library\Saved Application State (your home Library folder)
    this seems to be where it stores this info, I did a get info on this and then clicked the Locked tick box, stops anything writing to it (deleted the contents first)

    Nope. Not for me.

    Hey... nice trick. Unfortunately this takes full screen apps out of their full screen state on the next reboot. (Which makes sense because OSX can't write to a locked folder).

    Oh this is SO windows! I remember having to write protect a key in the windows registry to prevent MS from randomly reordering programs in the start menu. Please don't tell me that OS X users are faced with denying themselves write access to parts of the filesystem just to tame Lion. :eek:

    I have only write protected 4 folders so far in Lion to tame it a little :)
