do you have any files in the temp folder? I know if you kill maya on linux it saves before it does.

Maya has an incremental save feature in the save as option menu box.

With regards to losing files, if its an internal error usually maya will save it as a .ma file to your local temp folder, and is usually dated along with a time recorded too.

As for your cable being pulled, its kind of like a power cut so its highly unlikely your work will have saved.

As Jay said just switch on incremental save.
