Disable automatic application termination in OS X
Authored by: RussellK on Aug 15, '12 07:51:19AM

When I first noticed this with some apps, I thought the apps were somehow crashing in the background without generating any error/crash reports onscreen...so was somewhat relieved to read that this is actually intended behavior.

Just a thought...but if having the apps in question auto-terminate is a problem, has anyone considered hiding the apps (instead of closing their main windows) when they're not in use? That's what I've been doing, and it seems to work well...

I've seen this a lot with Apple's Calendar App, but when my coworker tries it, he doesn't see the auto terminate. There's has to be something more subtle than just closing windows to trigger this.
