Okay, so I downloaded this the other day to check it out. This morning fired it up, made a few changes, created the savefile (and also used the savefolder option later). Savefile is created correctly but not loading at startup. On one occasion my laptop screen dimmed after boot. Are these known issues?

I am not seeing these problems.
The save not loading is a common bug in Puppy that is usually caused by a lot of things.

Most common reason.
The boot menu entry using the wrong pmedia= for the device the save is on.

First, sure you got a good download of the Xenialpup 7.5 iso?
Installs do go wrong sometimes.

Details!!!
Installed to what?
What format?
How did you do the frugal install?
The computers specs?

So, it corrected by doing a new reboot?
There are some settings for this.

First time I've experienced this with any puppy. As said the savefile is created correctly at first shutdown but does not boot up. Then if you shut down again, the screen again appears as for first shutdown (to create a savefile) although a savefile already exists. At shutdown it says that the session has been saved (I don't know if that is true but the savefile does not boot anyway). The savefile is created on an ext3 partition on harddrive. Really strange, can't get the savefile to boot at all (but it mounts if you do it manually so it's a valid savefile). Everything else seems to work fine.
