How can I save so the all my closed methods remain closed when exiting?
Im using eclipse at the moment, and I got a main code part
which is about 1000 lines.
Now in eclipse I can click - at the side of a method declaration to make
the whole method dicappear, all besides the method declreation.
then I can click + at the side to see the whole method if I wish.
Only problem is that once I shut down and opens eclipse again, those methods are open!
How can I keep the methods closed?

Yes, that is annoying.
Another related annoyance, if I have a large XML file open, and have scrolled down into the middle of the file to a specific point, restarting Eclipse the file is always back at the top of the file. I have really waste a lot of time finding my place again.
One thing I have found is to just never exit Eclipse. To do so would mean I need to go make a pot of coffee while I wait for it to rebuild all the projects in the workspace.
To work this in practically, I changed from Slackware Linux to Ubuntu Linux just so the suspend to RAM feature of my notebook now actually works. I guess if you use windows on notebooks this probably just works anyway.
Or for desktop environments, going as far to run Eclipse inside a virtual machine, such as VirtualBox, so when I need to power off the desktop, I choose to suspend the virtual machine to save its state.
Outside of eclipse, this kind of keep your system on or suspend/resume all the time seems to work well for most other services, such as test database and web server instances.
But if its really a priority, i'm sure there is a facility on eclipse developer forum to submit this as a bug, enhancement, or feature request.
