Is Safari closing by itself for anyone else?

    I've noticed that when my Mac goes to sleep and I wake it up that Safari will be closed (as in the application has quit). In Mavericks it always stayed open (as in the black dot under the app was always there) unless I directly quit the application.

    Now that you mention it, yes!

    I have a Mini running headless and I've noticed I'm having to relaunch whenever I connect. Hadn't really thought much of it it until now.

    Also, most of the time it'll launch instantly, but on some occasions it'll sit bouncing for around 20-30 seconds.

    My Safari stays open after a restart and loads the same pages I had open.

    It has been that way since Mountain Lion I think. Not a bug, intended.

    It is called "Auto application termination" and used to drive me crazy until I found this fix.

    Interesting. It sounds like maybe it closes the app when it senses RAM getting low and isn't being used? I have 8 GB of RAM on my MBA though so not sure if that's really the case

    Either way, thank you :)
