When I close my browser it remembers "state" in the sense that it remembers what tabs I have open and text that I had entered into various forms.

Is there a way to do something similar with my terminal sessions?

I would happily spend quite a bit of processor time to guarantee that if my box suddenly shuts off, I can boot up to the same suite of tmux, man pages, R sessions, etc.

Although it is not a fine grained control as the ideal solution would be, maybe this will help: Restore tmux session after reboot

Ah, yeah - I've tried this before and it was my dissatisfaction with that solution that led me to pose the question. =) Thanks though. – isomorphismes Mar 1 '14 at 1:27
