    Hi, I don't quit apps I just close windows so every time I turn it back on 10+ apps start and I don't like that. So, every time I power down I uncheck the box but is there away to make it so by default that box is unchecked? I just think it would be easier hitting the power button and enter instead if having to use the trackpad. I know this is such a little thing but it's the only thing that annoys me so I'm hoping someone has a solution.

    Easy solution: develop habit of quitting apps
    Hard solution: hack Mac OS X to uncheck that box by default

    It's not really hard, there's a command line entry to disable the behavior (You will still be prompted with the checkbox but your response will not matter).

    I think it's very annoying. Honestly, it's all these little lack of choice annoyances that are making me consider just installing Win 7 on my Macbook Pro once and for all.
