Interesting.  The few times that I have used OOo, it has autosaved at
regular intervals.  When I was brave and running beta versions, the
restore always worked after a crash.  That said (and I don't mean to
start a flame war) why not use something more productive like LaTeX?
You don't mention that you are doing database or spreadsheet type
things, but if you all you are doing is presentations and document
composition, LaTeX is far superior.  Though, you do need to get past the
learning curve.
