ok so my laptop has no battery (the one wouldent take a charge so i took it out and saved 3 lbs :)
sometimes i am working on code and i click save so then i think it is saved and the program says so, HOWEVER sometimes i am in a rush so i just hit save then pull the plug when it says it is saved but it isent this has happened many times where i have written large ammounts of code like a hundred lines or so and it all just magically disappears, taken by the digital gnome

this is a really serious problem
an autosave feature would help too

Hi,
there are two things here :
First you could be  the victim of a bug in Arduino-0017 which ios fixed in Arduino-0018

And secondly (not arduino related) :

No modern Operating system allows you to pull the plug, you have to shut down the computer in the normal way otherwise you corrupt your data.

If you are in a hurry very often get that battery back into your laptop so you can send it into hibernate state.
