    Quit Safari before restarting. And /or uncheck the box in dialogue that shows up when you are shutting down or restarting.

    I never use Safari, that's my point! And it's never running when I restart. Additionally, there's a folder in the trash which never gets deleted (titled imac-G5 with folders inside it, eventually leading to a Wordpress plugin!). There's no warning msg that it's in use and regardless of what I do to remove it, it keeps reappearing, except once but then it returned after another restart).

     

    Frankly, I'm not impressed with the 'improvements', especially those awful scroll bars! In Mail, with around 6000 msgs in it, it's simply impossible for me to scroll accurately through them. Ok, clicking on the bar if there is a small number of files in the list but useless with the numbers I have).

     

    Don't fix it if it ain't broke!

    Could it be checked to "OPEN  at Login"? If so, uncheck it.  That's all I've got. ?   Just a thought.

    On the 27th of april 2012 Sony's .ARW-files (RAW) are still not consistently visible as thumbnails! Whereas they actually WERE in earlier MacOS versions.

    Rather a nasty thing when you have to work and click your way through vast collections of Sony RAW files (event, concert and theater shoots).....

     

    Apple - whip this out now, finally!!  This dawdling is not what we may expect from a world brand dedicated to semi- and full-professional mutimedia processing clients!

    The real issue is the resion the update was make to start with. Anow leopard was about adding fetures, and making the computer better and faster. But now lion is now about adding, its about conforming. apple is trying to make all the os's alike. And they are not considering that this isnt what people want. I mean Launchpad, really, its a computer, not an iPad. With vista micro was trying to make a better product, but atleast it didnt take a few months to get used to. Everything was still where it should be. Now with lion if i want to go back in safari, i cant just swipe my hand like i used to with out going to a new space. Speaking of, the new spaces *****. The whole point to spaces was to be able to orgnise. Now its just having all your stuff floting around. its so stupid. They truly reuied osx. This is a computer, dont try to make it into an iPad!

     

    Because to Lion, I will never purchus a Mac ever again. I built my own PC over the summer. For $2,800 i have the power of 8 macbook pros, and win 7 is really great. Your not restricted with all this stuff all the time: Dont like microsoft game marketplace, then add/remove --> Remove --> gone. Dont like app store --> "'App Store' can’t be modified or deleted because it’s required by Mac OS X."

     

    PC- Freedom

    Mac- Conform

    The App Store is required by OS X for software updates, that's why you shouldn't (i'm not sure about can't) delete it.

     

    Of course, the reason software updates are now pushed through the App Store is most certainly to drive more business (or at least attention) towards the paid-for Apps on sale.

     

    It isn't about conformity, it's about revenues, and certainly the developers aren't complaining.

     

    As for the end users who don't like it, drag the app store off the dock so you'll never see it again except for when there are Software Update notifications.
