Disable automatic application termination in Mac OS X

If you leave applications running without any open windows, Mac OS X will quit the application when it goes to the background. There is no setting in the system preferences to change this behavior. Use the following command to disable automatic application termination.

defaults write -g NSDisableAutomaticTermination -bool true

Restart your Mac or logout/in to make the changes appear, or restart apps on an app-by-app basis to activate the change.

defaults write -g NSDisableAutomaticTermination -bool false

  1. SOCKS is very a protocol for hlnnaidg traffic by means of a proxy server. It might be used along with other virtually any TCP/UDP application, including Net browsers and FTP clients. It delivers a simple firewall due to the fact it checks incoming and outgoing packets and hides the IP addresses of client applications. using Socks proxy is truly a excellent answer for Web anonymity and security.
