restore where I left off

Is there some reason IntelliJ does not exactly reproduce the state of
your open projects and windows when you shutdown and restart? 

It would seem to me it would be a fairly trivial matter store the
state on shutdown.

Hello Roedy,

What exactly do you mean by "not exactly reproduce"? What parts of the state
are not preserved?

don't know what the author ment

but for me it's quite unconvenient that tree in ProjectView is not preserved

but it's much more unconvenient that tree sometimes collapse event on "alt+tab"
that's disaster, you have to click a lot of plus signs and then suddenly it again collapses

I have divided my work into six projects, depending on which version
of the compiler they require.  I often have two or more of these
projects open at once since there is a fair bit of borrowing.  If I
shut down and restart, I just get back one of the projects.

Let's say I have everything fully compiled.  I shut down and restart.
Intellij seems to think it necessary do a compile from scratch of
everything. It only needs to see if any of the sizes/dates on the
*.java files have changed while it was "dreaming" -- a reference to
The A.C. Clarke movie 2010. If nothing changed, it has nothing to do.

Yes!  It seems often to collapse on its own without being asked.

It also forgets the width of the left panel.

Basically what I want is it to come back up in a way indistinguishable
from the way it looked when I clicked Exit.
