I create a backup of every document by laying tracing paper over the screen and tracing off all the text and pictures.
Failing that I go to:
+Menu > Pages > General Preferences > Editing > and tick "Back up previous version when saving"+
I also use programs like *iText Express 3.1* and *iText Pro '08* which have automatic saves in their preferences for my word processing. Pages is really a DTP program with some word processing features.
The same thing has happened to me. It's very upsetting.
I wonder why Mac doesn't offer an auto-save or recovery feature for Pages. MS offers this in Word, so that if you suffer a spontaneous reboot, the next time Word is run, it prompts to open the recovered document.
I have Time Machine and auto iDisk backup, but there is nothing I can do if I've typed 750 words before pressing cmd-s, and my Mac suddenly decides it's going to shut itself down.
There is no built-in Autosave feature in iWork's components but such a tool is available for months.
Go to my idisk:
I was able to write the tool but I can't install it for you
