Lately I have been experiencing some crashes due to a hardware failure I have yet to pinpoint. When this happens, I have to reboot and start over. This results in not so much losing my work as I am losing the point of where I was and what I was doing. Thus, I am looking for a program that I can quickly run as a safeguard against this (and not interrupt what I am doing).
Windows Hibernation mode is great for saving the status of all my open applications between sessions. There are a couple of problems with it though. First the system shuts down interrupting my work flow and second the hibernation file is only valid between booting up. If you crash, then you have to do a cold reboot. Very frustrating.
I saw a program, GoneIn60s at http://www.donationcoder..../index.php?topic=6314.new, that is similar to this concept but will not do what I need. I want essentially a program that will allow me to save the status of all my open applications whenever I need without having to shutdown, and restore them (optionally) at bootup- perhaps write the file out and set up a RunOnce registry entry. To avoid conflict with Windows Hibernation Mode, a dialog box could be presented to verify that the last open status should be restored. This is in case Hibernation mode was actually used.
Even without the minor crashing problem I am experiencing, I think this would be a great safeguard for anyone.
Until I saw GoneIn60s I didn't think this was possible. Now I leave it to you guys to see if it is.
Thanks, I appreciate it!
