Any cool solution to save ENTIRE screen content and state?

We have an ASPX (C#) webform which hosts dropdownlists, textboxes, grids,
checkboxes, etc.
The users want to:

#1 - "FREEZE" the entire webpage contents (and state)
#2 - move IE browser to another URL (possibly several URLs ... maybe
even terminate the session and restart another session an hour+ later)
#3 - but eventually to return to the original FROZEN page
#4 - and .... shazam .... everything is exactly like they left it

I know I could write code to save the contents and state of each control
into the database ONE CONTROL AT A TIME. Then reconstitute the form later ONE
CONTROL AT A TIME. But that would be SOOOOOO much work.

Does anyone know a COOL way to capture

#1 - an entire webpage and state in a serializable form
#2 - save the capture to a database file
#3 - reconstitute the entire saved page later

Thanks - Volking

P.S. this entire operation happens in an HTTPS environment where users are
authenticated against Active Directory. So security is ok.

This is a classic ASP NG.

For ASP.NET please ask in a dot.net NG

Perhaps it is the big pond interfering,
but what the heck is "a COOL way"?
Something to do with processor temperature?

This is not an ASP.NET question, but yes it can be done.

My first try, if you use it, is to grab the entire viewstate as name value
pairs and persist it as a chunk. You can then match controls to saved state
and shazam. If you are not using ViewState, you can still iterate through the
controls, but realize that with either, a person changing state and closing
the browser without saving will end up with a page in flux.

Hi, I am using Divs with CSS to setup a layout for a site. I am using the <Div>s and style sheets below. I want the TopMenu to go across the entire top of the browser.

The top menu will only go to the screen...

Hi, I have a program which will continue to run for several days. When it is running, I can't do anything except waiting because it takes over most of the CUP time. Is it possible that the program can save all running data to a file when I want it to stop, and can reload the data and continue to run from where it stops when the computer is free ?
