oh... I re-read your post on the savefile slowly I think I missed the point the first time.
I'll try your advice to create a savefile viewtopic.php?f=6&t=1175&p=3358&hilit=savefile#p3358

From my experience, some are working really well, some are just nightmares, and there is a few in between... PlayOnLinux really helps to manage the settings, wine version and they even provide install scripts that does most of the installation work for you. Performance wise, if you can get good drivers for your hardware, there is not much of a slowdown vs. Windows. But this is just my personal "feeling", I never measured FPS or anything to confirm...
There is most of the time a bit more work involved than Windows...
You could always buy more RAM, that's the easiest solution I guess
hehehe, I really should... I'll get a new laptop soon which should fix this

I manually save the changes by creating an SB module. It can be done with ScoobyTools "sq-session" for example or "sbcomb" if you know the folder directly. Search for ScoobyTools in the forum if you want to look at it. Working really well...
If you boot without a savefile, then nothing is kept after a reboot no matter if toram is used or not. If you use a savefile, then changes are saved no matter if you use toram or not. usbmode is used with a savefile to limit the amount of writes to the usb device. It is meant to preserve your usb key from continuous writes that would end up limiting it's life in the long term.
toram is used to load AlphaOs and your modules all in your RAM memory. Without a active savefile, you can remove your usb stick from your computer after the boot sequence is finished and it will still be running. You also get a speed increase depending on your setup. Accessing RAM is always faster than USB.
* I hope that I got this right
It's all new to me, only started using AlphaOS a few weeks ago. *
