Wing should be auto-saving your project every 10 seconds and offering to 
restore the auto-saved copy at startup.  Also, even if it fails to save 
it shouldn't lose bookmarks you set in an earlier session (in case 
that's what you're seeing).

I wonder if your project file if corrupted.  Can you email it to support 
at wingware dot com?

Also, do you have any idea what is freezing Wing?  Obviously, it 
shouldn't be doing that.  Next time it happens, please send in a bug 
report from the Help menu with the error log included so we can try to 
diagnose that.
