Launching apps at startup System
Reader "parki" wrote in with the question "I recognize that I am likely missing the obvious, but does anyone know how to have apps auto launched when I log in, re-creating the environment when I log out?"

There's at least a partial answer in the System Prefs application. Go to the Login panel, and you can add applications to the list. You can even (apparently) add shell scripts, which opens up a world of possibilities. I was able to add a shell script, but I didn't test it with a logout/login combo. Interesting to think about what you could do, though.

Launching the apps isn't quite totally recreating the environment, but it's a start.
