every time I close the client with CMD+Q, which is kind of a reflex, I get this message 10x before I can open it. Pretty annoying. Right now I can't open it at all.

open up task manager and try quit any LoL related processes, maybe UserKernel or LoLClient LoL launcher basically anything LoL related then try reboot.

Same issue, but I have narrowed it down slightly. Something is getting left in memory without being unrefenced. What, I don't know yet.

I use a tool called "Memory Clean" (free, AppStore), it fixes up dead references in your RAM to give you the most of your memory. If I use it after closing the LolClient, then I never have this problem.

This also leads me to think that the client checks it's memory footprint to see if it still running, and not running processes (ps ax|grep LoLClient; for example). I'd be interested to know, as I've compared processes when the client is running and when it is not.
