Recently PS has started opening with Quick Mask selected. This creates all sorts of issues with functionality that take me too long to resolve. After experiencing this numerous times I may be smart enough now to know how to fix.
How do I keep this from happening?

The first thing to check is that you are not in Quick Mask when you quit. Try to pay attention to see if you might be pressing Q for Quick Mask instead of Command+Q for Quit.
If that's not happening, you may need to reset Preferences: Prefs > General > Reset Prefs on Quit after backing up any customization.
Thanks Jane. See my note below to Ali. This was exactly the issue.
You're welcome, @DaBrownCO , happy to help.
Check to see if your MacBook Pro is on this list for keyboard repairs:
If not, there are a couple of solutions for stuck keys that you can find on Google. I haven't tried any, though.
Hi try to reset your preferences to restore to defaults there is no such thing which you are saying to select quick mask selected in start.....regards
During my bout of insomnia last night, I figured out that the problem is an operator error. I think I may have a sticky key on my Macbook Pro so when I hit CMD-Q, the CMD is not always entered. Thus, when I finally do close Photoshop, the Quick Mask is still activated.
Thanks for your help.
The issue seams to be. useing Comand Q to leave the Photoshop Application Just like you would for any other Mac Application But No Adobe has desided that Comand Q should put you into Qick mask edit. But I am sure that they will spin it so it looks like your fault.
