A very good point. What I should have said here is that neither the
session manager nor (most) apps  manage to preserve state across
sessions. Firefox is a great example here and I actually depend quite
a lot on its behaviour these days (keeping tabs open as todo items
etc). Bringing this to other apps would be a win for everyone anyway,
regardless of also improving the power on/off situation.
