    add this into your wp-config.php file, in the root WP folder

    define('AUTOSAVE_INTERVAL', 900); // Auto-save 15 minute interval

    900 is the # of seconds - here, 15 minutes. Change # to what you require

    Hi Shane,

    I found the autosave_interval, 60 in a file named wp-settings.php also located in the root folder. I changed it to 600.
    Set at 60 it was autosaving faster than I could click - about every second; This is working great now in editing drafts or published pieces.

    If you add the line to wp-config.php would there be a conflict?
