    Nothing that I am aware of, as that would mean a save every keystroke which would seriously interfere with the operation of the program.

    Wordpad is a very basic default text editor, you need a better one that supports "autosave", which would at least allow a backup to be reurrected (not of the very latest at any crash, but you can set the save period as a minute or so). Microsoft Word has the autosave feature, OpenOffice (free) may have as well.

    But you should be putting the effort into diagnosing and fixing the cause of the crashes/ freezes if it is a recurrent problem rather than living with them, it is not normal.
