Once, about 3 years ago, I saw some RAM on the History Channel that claimed to retain its information after shutdown. What this added up to was that when you turned your computer back on, your OS wouldn't have to reboot and you were in the same place as when you shut down, with all the programs running too. What happened to this idea? Wouldn't it have been developed by now?

It's in the same waiting room as super conductors.

Actually it can be found in Automotive computers where it is used as a sort of "Flash" memory. It is used to retain Fault codes in 1996 and later (OBD II) ECM's so that they are not lost when the battery is disconnected for longer then 30 seconds (the charge span of the old capacitors used in earlier ECM's.

Thats if this is the same stuff im thinking it is.
