"save session for future logins" - why doesn't that keep all my windows open?


As you know, many desktop managers (and all the ones I've used) have a "save session for future logions" option on the logout window. I guess I don't fully understand what that can and can't do. Normally, I always keep the option selected. So, I keep wondering why, the next time I log in, all the windows I left open are now closed. Everything that I really needed to save, such as all my internet tabs, is saved; but it does not give me an exact reproduction of what I left the last session with, as though I had put it in suspend or hibernate. Is it supposed to, or does it just not work that way?

After over 1900 posts this question is awful! You should know how to post a question by now!
What distro are you using?
What version are you using?
What desktop are you using?
Whgat apps are you usin?
Etc etc etc ...

How can we expect new posters to ask proper questions and give relevent info when long standing members can't be bothered to put any thought into their question.

Okay. Not dealing with any more imperious moderators in any way except to abandon the post. I'll handle the issue myself, or ignore it.

I am NOT a mod nor did I imply that I was, I am just someone who freely gives his time to the people on this forum and doesn't like to keep asking the same questions especially from OPs who should know better, get off your high horse and put some thought into your questions and maybe you will get people putting thought into their reply's.
