Depends on what kind of document. Newer HTML and XHTML versions are much more strict and require to close many tags. DW is merely obeying these things. You would probably just have to change the doc type definition, but that may result in a non-compliant file once you need to validate it.
When I write tags in Dreamweaver they always auto-complete when I close the first tag. Like this:
<b> and directly get a fully closed </b>
I don't want that.
Open Preferences (Edit menu on Windows, Dreamweaver menu on a Mac), and select the Code Hints category. Choose the way you want tags to be completed from the following options:
