Is there a way to save my workspaces(the windows I have open) so that when I restart my computer, all my of the windows will be reopened and positioned in the same way?
I have ubuntu 11.04 and run GNOME

You can save which applications are opened when you shut down, by activating this option:
Nevertheless, this won't remember which workspace each application was running. To do that you can use the compiz plugin "Place Window" to configure "Windows with fixed viewport" based on the application name.
You must create a rule for each application, which will then open in the specified viewport (workspace) whenever you start it.
