Also saving after compile is a great strategy as pointed out by Mark W as there are times when a code error will lock up the IDE and you have to force quit LC. You should *NEVER* have to shut down the OS though! That is extreme. With Windows you can use ALT-F4. If that doesn't do it, then open your Task Manager and force the app to quit there. On OS X, it's option-command-esc.

I'm a bit an*l; I save after every line of code.
