Saving the whole workspace...

I use Mathematica in a Windows NT environment.
When I work with MathematicaI have several notebooks from all over 
my "Projects" directory open but minimized so I can refer to them 
without having to search for them & reopen them.  I would like to shut 
down Mathematica to reboot, turn the computer off (we have orders from 
on high to save energy this way), and so forth.  Call me lazy, if you 
want, but  I want to reopen the whole collection of notebooks without 
having to hunt all over the place for them. Other Windows applications, 
esp. Excel, allow you to save a whole workspace with a mere click of the 
mouse.  Is there any way to do this in Mathematica?  The only 
alternative I can think of is to create a special folder with copies (or 
maybe shortcuts) of the files from every "session", then go into that 
folder and reopen every  notebook in there when I take up that project 
again. I think this is pretty inefficient in time and disk space.
