    Is there a way to turn off this automatic resume crap? When I cmd+Q, I do it because I actually want it to quit and start fresh the next time. I don't want it to "start up where it left off" the next time I start it. It feels like I can never quit:eek:!

    Just starting using cmd + w instead of cmd + q. Much easier and when you'll actually want resume it'll be there.

    Unchecking the box in prefs to get rid of auto resume DOES NOT WORK.

    Can you be a bit more specific, it works for everyone else

    I think that setting only works for apps and is independent from a system restart/resume.

    it certainly is, but when someone just says it does not work, we dont really know what they are referring to

    Number of recent items: NONE for Apps and documents. And also uncheck "Restore Windows when quitting and re-opening apps".

    I misspoke. It is this feature I want to uncheck and have remain unchecked:

    I don't want to have to uncheck that box every time I shut off my iMac. I want the box to remain unchecked. I don't want the "windows reopened."

    You have to wonder about a programming environment in which the managers think it is OK to make virtually mandatory a "feature" that many users will find annoying. It's enough when I shut down my iMac to "agree" to shut it down; why should I have to deselect something I will never consciously use? :confused: :D

    So let me be clear - what we are saying is there is no way to disable this feature?

    Even when I un-tick the button at shutdown - and it restarts without Resume - if I open a program ( Safari ) - it opens all the last windows.....


    Poor show - I, like many, want rid of this:mad:

    There is indeed a way to disable this feature - be it checked or not checked.
    Have a look here.
