    So, lets say I'm working on an iWork document (such as Pages), and I save. Instead of clicking the little 'x' button to close the document, I command+Q to quit Pages altogether.

    My problem comes in when I re-open Pages or another Pages document. Not only does the new document open, but the previous one does as well. I can't stand this! Why is this happening? Unless I hit the 'x' button to close the window, it will always open previous documents where I didn't do that.

    I turned off the 'resume' function already in System Preferences. What do I do?

    there must be a Pages preference for "open last document", try looking in there.

    Try holding option when quitting, this should quit and discard the "saved" documents.

    Go to:
    System Preferences>General
    Uncheck the box - Restore windows when quitting and re-opening apps.

    I have noticed Pages opening faster now.
