 Can Session Management be better?

Session management allows you to Save Edits (Crtl+B) as a way of protecting work done in event of a crash or big stuff up situation.
But, it takes a long to to complete the save so whilst it is valuable, it is also a pain waiting whilst the Green Goblin rides the progress bar.

What needs to happen is 'AUTOMATIC MODE ' or 'Background Mode'
e.g saves edits on the fly or within a user defined time - e.g. 1 minute - to consecutive session blocks as defined in the number of edits per session.

So this would mean that it take no time at all to keep on top of the session.
It also means the backing up only uses the processor when it is idle, modelling has priority.

Then when we come to restore a session, we can choose to what level/session number it is restored.

Hopefully this would speed up full saves as well.

If you support this, you need to comment and show you flag.
Cheers Paul (recently very annoyed with loosing heaps):@

Vote #2 I also have lost files. I have had ZW blow me out of my design when an icon did not work. One of them was simplify and others also. I do save often because of this.

As I see it if Session management was improve the Saving Edits - time lag during file close, switch tabs etc could be eliminated or at least removed from being observable.
IMO there needs to be an improvement in the switching time between open models and almost no delays when closing models or Z3
