Disable automatic application termination in OS X
Authored by: DavidRavenMoon on Aug 02, '12 08:16:35AM

This is not true of every application. I've been using the Vienna RSS reader, and I close it's single window all the time. It's still in the Dock, and will open a new window when I click on the Dock icon.

Other applications are perfectly happy having no window open when in the background, like Outlook 2011 and even iTunes.

If there a time limit before OS X quits the app?

Disable automatic application termination in OS X

There is no time limit. The application quits immediately as soon as you switch to a different app. And that's what makes this "Automatic Termination" feature so flawed.
