In Windows 7 it's convenient to "aero-snap" a window to the edge of a screen and there are some programs I always expect in a particular position (eg. Windows Explorer snapped to the left, Chrome snapped to the right). The thing is, when I exit the program and run it again the window size and position is what it was before being snapped. I can't manually change it to the same position and size (left/right side of the screen, full height) without it being automatically snapped, either. Is there any way I can "save" the snapped position - maybe some registry hack?

One way to do it is to first snap the window to the desired location, then manually re-size it a little bit, and then close the window by clicking the red X.

It actually depends on the Application whether to remember the last size and position or not. You cannot control that. What you can do is use another program that runs always and remembers the positions and size for you between the application session. Something like WindowManager. It supports Windows 7 it says. And there maybe more alternatives to it.
