When I shut down/sleep the laptop without closing Word, next day I get the Document Recovery panel with the files I was using before shut down.
I already unchecked in Word Options-->Save "Save AutoRecover information". In fact all options in Save panel are unchecked.
I have Windows 7.

Sounds like there might be a problem with your files. Technically, you should not have to go through that each time you open a file. Can you be more specific? Does this happen with one specific file or all files? –  CharlieRB Jun 17 '13 at 11:37
@CharlieRB Well, not every time. This morning it appeared for the first file I opened (being notified for two files I used yesterday) and not for the rest. –  Theta30 Jun 17 '13 at 15:24
Are these files from a previous version? If so, do a "save as" to the new format and see if it fixes the issue? If it doesn't, try a repair installation of Office. –  CharlieRB Jun 17 '13 at 18:16
@CharlieRB I have edited my question –  Theta30 Jul 4 '13 at 19:40
