    An option to automatically save a scene when you press the Play button would be great.

    Would a menu item "Open last play mode scene" work for you?

    That would be a wonderful feature too, but I was thinking of something a little different.

    Sometimes I forget to save my scene before pressing Play, and then the editor crashes and I lose some of my work. It'd be good to have an option to automatically save the scene you are working on before it "Plays". Most of the crashes have been related to that ATI Radeon 9200 bug with the water.

    I was thinking of a check box in the "General" pane of the Unity Editor Preferences, titled something like "Automatically save scene before playing"

    Cheers,

    I'll add that feature to the next beta.
    Until then. In your project folder there is a file Temp/__EditModeScene.
    Rename that to have the .unity extension. This is your scene before you entered playmode
