I have an 89 snapper riding mower . all of a sudden the blade stays engaged even when lever is not? It was doing fine the last time I used it and this time it was hard to engage but I got it engaged and mowed a few rounds and it choked down and now I can't get the blade to not turn when I turn the engine over.

Check the springs, and nuts, and see if the pulley moves and doesn't stick when engaging/disengaging

The blade on my snapper riding mower disengages but will engage by resetting. it then disengages again

My experience has been the clutch is bad. There is a "clearance gap" between the clutch pads so when it energizes a magnet is charged drawing the two together. When the clearance exceeds a certain amount, the clutch either will engage and almost immediately stop or not engage at all. Costly, too.

What will cause blades on J.Deere G100 mower to Freely turn by hand without causing Spindles or belt to turn even though Bolts are still tight and when installed Blade turned only if spindle turned

Do Ray:
If the blade engagement lever is in the disengaged position, the belt will be loose, allowing you to turn the blades by hand. If you place the blade engagement lever in the engaged position (with the motor off) it will be hard to turn the blades because of the tension on the belt. If the blades are still easy to turn with the blade engagement lever in the engaged position, you need to replace the blade drive belt!

Snapper Zero Turn mower. Blade will not engage. Any suggestions?

I am not sure what type of blade engagement mechanism you have (ex. clutch, tensioner/idler pulley, etc...) but make sure that the blades can spin freely with the belt taken off of their pulleys. It could very well be that one of the pulley bearings is seized.
