Suggestions for those of us who keep MD open for long periods

Hi -
I typically keep MD open on my machine for weeks at a time. There are couple of things that don't happen when I do this:
1) the default date for a new transaction stays at the date I started MD
2) Auto-entered reminders don't get put in unless I restart
Would it be possible to make these things update even if MD is left open for days at a time?

Thanks and keep up the great work! Love MD!
Dave

    Also.... You will NOT get any auto backups - probably the worst point!!!! These only trigger when you close MD....

    You need to add to your list….

    As you are also not allowing MD to create its regular Daily Backups, so unless you are manually making backups, you are facing an avoidable risk to your data, should the inevitable happen.

    There have also been reports about some versions of MD not releasing memory properly if the DataSet is kept open for long periods.
