When shutting down or logging out regularly, there is an option to reopen, or not, all the programs and their respective windows upon logging in again.
That option for me is unchecked, and the OS seems to remember that choice.
Likewise, in the General panel of System Preferences, I have it set to NOT reopen windows/documents when relaunching programs.
However, if the new login occurs after a power outage, every single program that was previous opened gets opened up and attempts to load the windows that were open, rendering my computer basically unusable for almost ten minutes or more (I often have dozens of programs open and we won't even talk about number of tabs on Chrome).
Is there a way to suppress the relaunching of programs and previously opened documents permanently and definitively?
I'm on Sierra.
