Add the next lines to your .emacs:

(require 'desktop)
(condition-case ()
    (desktop-read)     ;; restore desktop files (protected from errors)
    (error nil))

Read the help for desktop-globals-to-save and desktop-locals-to-save
variables (you may want to modify them).

I also suggest to add the following snippet that will ensure you
against crashes of any kind (e.g. kill -9 <emacs-pid>).

(defun desktop-save-in-home-dir ()
  "save desktop on home directory"
       (if (buffer-file-name)
           (desktop-save "~/"))
(add-hook 'find-file-hooks 'desktop-save-in-home-dir t)
(add-hook 'kill-buffer-hook 'desktop-save-in-home-dir t)
