10.7: Completely disable Resume
Authored by: godzirraa on Sep 22, '11 08:21:55AM

My system kept taking back control of ~/library/preferences/
i had to go full monty with chmod augo-w ~/library/preferences/ in order for the change to stick.

Thanks for the hint! Once i ran that everything worked just fine

10.7: Completely disable Resume
Authored by: SeySayux on Sep 23, '11 11:44:48PM

Yes, I noticed that too. I solved it using this:

x=$(ls ~/Library/Preferences/ByHost/* | grep -v lock)
rm $x;
mkdir $x;
touch $x/f;

This replaces the file where OS X stores the windows is has to open next time with a folder (making it completely impossible for OS X to restore this file).
