I can only type:

M-x apropos-auto-save

For some reason it won't omit the "-" between "apropos" and "auto"

Try: M-x apropos RET auto-save RET

HTH,

Hehe thanks...then I get a list of auto-save functions, but I don't see
anywhere that that you could put:

(setq auto-save-default nil)

in you .emacs file to permanently turn off auto-save.

Huh?

I get:

auto-save-default
Variable: *Non-nil says by default do auto-saving of every file-visiting buffer.


and if you middle-click on Variable, you get:

auto-save-default's value is t

*Non-nil says by default do auto-saving of every file-visiting buffer.


That tells you what you need to know.
