Would love to be able to have PS remember my preference here. I *never* use "hyphenate" (but get that plenty of people do).

Hi Lee,

If you looking the Paragraph panel, you'll see in the bottom-left corner of the panel a checkbox labelled Hyphenate.  If you uncheck that, your current selection will no longer be hyphenated and any future text you create will be the same.

Further, hyphenation has been set to "Off" by default in Photoshop CC 2015.1.

It never remembered for me - no
Matter how many documents I started and turned it off, every single new document would forget and I'd need to set it to off again. Glad it's now off by default.
