If I sync once while having "no apps" synced, the next time they are unchecked.I-mac 24" 2.8ghs intel core 2 duo, 4gb sdram, 1tb hard drive, Ipad 3G 64GB, Mac OS X (10.6.2), 80 gb ipod,160gb classic,32gb ipod touch, Apple TV, 1tb Time Capsule

If you restore your iPad with iTunes from your iPad's backup, all apps that were selected under the Apps tab for your iPad's sync preferences before restoring should be selected, not all apps that are available in your iTunes library. The same under the various tabs for your iPad's sync preferences.
If you restore as a new iPad or not from your iPad's backup, you must reselect the apps under the Apps tab you want installed on your iPad and the same under the various tabs for your iPad sync preferences with iTunes.

Also, on a mac, if you hold down the command/⌘ and then click on one box it checks or unchecks all of the apps. At least it does in my iTunes! (OS 10.7.2, iTunes 10.5.2, iPhone 4S - iOS 5.0.1).

That's a great shortcut I had no idea about. Helped me because I had an iPhone backup I wanted to put on a new iPad (so I couldn't start as a new device) but didn't want any apps on there to start with.
