    All apps are set to start up in their own desktop at login. Calendar opens and displays fine, Mail and Notes are loaded but minimized to the dock.

    These are not full screen.

    In System Preferences > Accounts > youraccount > Login Items, are the apps checked? If so, uncheck them.

    They're all unchecked.

    So far, it's Safari, TextEdit and Notes that do not open up at all in their assigned desktops. Their indicator lights in the dock show they are running just not visible. Once I click them on the dock they open in their proper desktop.

    Apps like Calendar, messages, mail and reminders appear correctly in the desktops I've assigned them right after a reboot.

    These apps are not set up as full screen... and I've selected "do not" reopen windows when logging back in.

    My goal is to be presented with a fresh set of desktops each one containing their assigned apps ready to go every time I log back in or reboot. Instead the desktops for some apps are blank. This has been going on since 10.8.0 and nothing has changed.

    I suppose I'll have to whip up a script to do what Apple can't.
