I need to create a "please wait..." message box, that will keep user from interacting with GUI and will close once internal calculation is completed. I don't want it to have the "ok" button. How do I do that?

If there is no button, what would you do to close it? MSGBOX is a convenience, you can write your own GUI pretty easy.

I would do this:
h=<dialog>('please wait');
<calculation>
close (h);

It sounds like you want a waitbar.

that would be nice; except the calculation is actually just a save command to save 2 gigs of data; so there is no way to track progress in a waitbar

Then literally just make a modal figure that says saving...
h = figure('units','pixels','position',[500 500 200 50],'windowstyle','modal');
uicontrol('style','text','string','Saving...','units','pixels','position',[75 10 50 30]);
%blah
close(h)
