At present I'm experimenting with some weird ideas to test what is possible to do, and I suddenly ran into a dilemma.
I want to add auto-save to a notes-taking section. At present I set auto-save to 15 seconds intervals, but wonder if anyone know if there is a standard for such intervals. If not I should like to know what intervals you prefer.

I would think more like every 3 to 5 minutes would make more sense.  Other wise, on older machines, it would be saving all the time.

When all else fails, get a bigger hammer.

Thanks Bill!
You're quite right. So I will change the intervals when I see that everything works ok.

I worked on an editorial system at our newsoaper that saved every time you pressed Return on a paragraph
Great on short stories, but became tedious on longer stuff!

Brian,
That's what I started with, but  thought there must be better ways. Therefore I began experimenting with a timer controlled save routine.
