What I have not been able to find is an option for allowing, or not allowing, cookies to remain after leaving...
In IE you can accept 1st party cookies and session cookies; just block the 3rd party cookies.
By definition, a cookie is something that stays behind even if you turn off the computer. That's so you can return later to a website and the website can reinstate some of your information. If the website gives you the option to stay signed in it should do that. In many cases you may have to let IE save your password when it asks if that is what you want. If it doesn't ask, you many have to reset IE: tools/internet options/advanced/reset (include personal settings).
Of course, once you reset IE, all the personal settings for all websites will be deleted and you will be starting over. That's why I use a program intended to let you delete the login information for an individual site; having done so IE will ask the question about saving the login data for just that site: http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/interne..._password.html
