When I turn my linestage off, the motorized pot automatically goes back to full off position. If one wanted to preserve the precise listening level of the last session, this would be a negative, but, apart from that, I don't see a real problem. I like the assurance that I will not be accidentally blasting the system.
I don't know the name of the feature, but I've encountered it in two different versions. When my Classe CAP-101 powered up, the volume would reset to zero and a 10-second countdown ensued before it could be increased. With the Wyred4Sound STI500-II, if the last volume used before powering down is at or below level "29," the volume starts at that level upon powering up. If the last volume is "30" or more, then the volume starts at level "23," a moderate level. I prefer Wyred's approach but never minded Classe's, thanks to having a remote so I didn't have to stand in front of the amp waiting to set the volume.
@edgyhassle....sounds like a great alarm clock you've got there. ;)

On my Anthem A/V receiver, I can pre-set startup volume for each input, IIRC.
On my Gato pre, "When the preamplifier enters standby mode again it will remember the selected input channel and volume level. If the volume level is higher than 50, it will be reduced to 50 when the preamplifier exits standby mode."
My ML 585.5 provides for these Volume Control options:
Turn On: This setting lets you set a Speaker output and Line output volume level to which your N0585 will default every time you turn it on.
