    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  

    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.
