There is a FAQ on this at the math wiki site:

http://www.mathematica-users.org/webMathematica/wiki/wiki.jsp? 
pageName=FAQ_Saving_your_work

and the exec summary of this is to use something like:

DumpSave["memorydump.mx",Evaluate[Contexts[]]];

and restore the memory with

Get["memorydump.mx"].

All the best,
