[CentOS] Restoring session status

I am running  CentOS 6.6 on both a couple of servers and on a laptop. When I let the laptop sleep, window states and positions are restored correctly when I awaken it. However, when I shut down the laptop, later turn it on and log in, none of the terminal windows and directory windows are restored correctly to e.g. minimized state, instead they are restored to when they last were in use.

Naturally, this is a little bit annoying: have I missed a setting somewhere?
