Re: desktop mode, periodic save

i'm using desktop.el, with the intention so that in case of crashing
(emacs or OS), i can still have emacs open files i have left open when
crashed.

However, desktop mode by default doesn't save periodically, so that
after a crash, i lost the info of opened files. (i think this defeats
the main purpose of desktop mode)

So i added a desktop-save to find-file-hook. Like this:

(desktop-save-mode 1)
(add-hook 'find-file-hook (lambda () (desktop-save "~/")))

But the problem with this is that, when i launch emacs (no crash
involved), it will ask me to override the desktop file each time it
opens a file (due to previous desktop save)

I think the solution is to add the hook only when the initialization
is complete. How can i do that?
