The open TMP docs use system resources. There isn't a set number that
you can keep standing before they start to affect performance -- it
depends on your PC. For my PC, if I've got more than 30-40 MB of those
squiggly lines in the folder, things get a little hinky.

Even when I have a bunch of Word docs open, I'm usually making & saving
changes in only one of them -- so if I just close and open that doc, I'm
back to business.

By the way, one of the posters mentioned autosave -- I *never* autosave,
save in background, or allow fast saves.
