You can set the Toolbar to be always on by doing the following:

On the Mathematica menu, go to Format, Option Inspector. In the Option 
Inspector, pick Global Perferences in the Show Option Values dropdown. 
Open up Notebook Options on the left pane, then Display Options. Over on 
the right pane, select WindowToolbars and select EditBar from the dropdown.

I'm also a big fan of the keyboard shortcut Ctl-S for save. It is second 
nature for me to hit Ctl-S every few minutes when working in Mathematica 
or just about any other application. I wish I could get my students to 
do it (I try, but some of them just won't save).
