    It occurred to me because Juri wanted to auto-save the desktop only
    every hour.  Hence, I'd first wait for an hour and then until Emacs
    has become idle for at least five minutes.

One cannot argue with tastes, but one drawback is that if he never
takes a 5-minute break, it will never auto-save the desktop.

That's why I suggest auto-saving whenever Emacs is idle for N minutes
_or_ H hours have elapsed since the last save.  If you take breaks
often enough, it will save in the breaks and only in the breaks.
But if you don't take breaks, it will eventually save anyway.
