set your programs ie office/word etc to save every 3 mins or so, that way no matter what happens you will only lose 3 minutes of work since the last save, they will auto save in "my documents"" or where ever you set the save folder to be.

i hate computers!
but cant help myself....

Save a sample word document to your documents folder and remember the name. Open documents folder and make sure it is there, restart and look again. It should be there but if you do not see it try a windows search for the name, that way you may figure out where they are being moved to or if they are being hidden for some reason.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
