Manually save file


I have a computer problem where sometimes I shut the lid and and when I reopen the computer is frozen and requires a full shutdown, restart to get back up. When it is up, about the last 20 minutes of data entered into FM is gone.

How can I do a force save in FM? I want to be able to hit a key stroke and then it will save everything right then as opposed to relying on the the Preferences Memory setting. I now have that at Save Cache Contents at Idle Time which is what it has always been on.

Also, how does FM define Idle Time? What does that mean? When does it save in Idle time? Is it idle for just that file or does the entire FM program have to be idle? The reason I ask is that in some cases, I am constantly using FM and may files for hours.

Any help here would be greatly  appreciated.
I have FMPro Advanced 13.0 v5
OS - Windows 7
