In the *Apropos* buffer I see:

,----
| auto-save-default
|   Variable: *Non-nil says by default do auto-saving of every file-visiting 
buffer.
|   Plist: standard-value variable-documentation custom-type custom-requests
`----

So by setting that variable to NIL (which is the only value that is
not non-nil) you disable auto-saving.  For setting some symbol to some
value you can use SETQ, or set-variable.

``C-h v auto-save-default RET'' indicates that one can also change its
value with customize which I have never used but seems to be regarded
as more intuitive.

Albert.
