I realise that it's not clever to pull out a memory stick while you're using it, but if the jobs done is it still neccessary to use this button?

Here's a how to if you want to turn on cache for Windows... for better performance like Linux

 

Expand the Disk drives section in the Device Manager, right-click your device, and select Properties.

Select the Policies tab in the Properties window.  You’ll notice that Windows says you can disconnect your USB device safely without using the Safely Remove Hardware notification icon, but data corruption is still a possibility.

Hope this helps.
