    I'm perplexed and hoping someone can help with this. When I shutdown mountain lion by clicking on Shut Down... I get the dialog box that has the Reopen windows when logging back in button unchecked. No problem, when I reboot my windows do not reopen. But if I use shutdown from the command line, or use applescript to shut down:

    tell application "Finder"
    shut down
    end tell

    My windows open up on restart. In Lion there was a box in preferences about reopening windows but I don't see the same thing in ML. Does anyone know how to modify this behavior in ML?

    If you have the app "Relaunch Finder" in your login items, remove it. That's what was causing windows to open on Restart for me.
