How can I manually save the session in chromium-broswer?

I have a Notebook with damaged battery (only gives 5~6 minutes of backup, planning to buy a new one), and in our country power outages ("Load Shedding") are quite common.

So, I have had to close my session before shutting down my laptop. When I re-open chromium, there is no tab with previous session.

The question is: How can I manually save my session before closing the laptop?

to have more control on sessions, use some session manager. I find "Session Buddy" useful – Piyush Jun 19 '12 at 9:13

You can use the Session Manager extension. It's awesome -- I use it regularly. :D
