If Geany is not closed properly (for example for the reasons you
outlined above, or a very unlikely :) crash of Geany) then changes in
the buffers in memory will be lost, but the files on disk should be
ok.  You would be fairly unlucky if a save was in progress when Geany
shutdown leaving the disk file damaged.

The save actions plugin has some functions that allow intermittent
saving or saving of backups if you have a flakey system or habitually
forget to save before closing Geany.
