    How do I stop OS X Lion from automatically opening things?
    I just upgraded to OS X Lion, and now, when I launch an application, the document windows that were open the last time I used the application are automatically opened. This seems to be a change from Snow Leopard. Is there a way to turn this off? I looked at System Preferences> Users and Groups, but that only lets me say which applications to open, not whether previous documents should be automatically opened.

    Thanks for your help.

    open system preferences, go to general and un-check the box that says restore windows when quitting and re-opening apps

    Plus, make sure you actually quit all apps before shutting down. Not just closing the apps.
