ISE should provide an option to restore previously opened files at startup
When ISE starts up, it should by default (make that configurable: always, prompt, never) restore all files that were open in the previous session.
I assume you mean the same behavior as when the ISE crashes and recovers your session? I would also love to see this. We’ll post back here if/when it gets implemented.
Today I have to intentionally crash my ISE (kill process) to have my session restored after a reboot. So, a setting for this would be really nice. ;)

if MS does do it, I'd like to see two things:
1. A toggle in the $PseIse.Options object that enables/disables this. There are going to be times when I do NOT want previously opened files to open up.
2. How about a control key option at start up -so that THIS time ISE starts, no previously opened files?
I'm enjoying this functionality (in WMF 4) thanks to the ISESteroids module.
For anyone else interested in this 'feature', I highly recommend http://www.powertheshell.com/isesteroids/

stop-process -id $pid # will kill the ISE process so it will open with prior tabs as it thinks it is recovering from a crash.
