I couldnt find what you're looking for in the link provided by jonvee and so I wanted to mention I'm not sure if there is a way to disable functionality in notepad.exe. You can prevent it from being runable though via http://support.microsoft.com/kb/324036.  

It may be an option (or maybe even necessary) to program your own notepad like application that doesnt have save features, which would be a very simple app.
