I was not able to find much documentation of this option.  If autosave is on - what does it save?  If I am running IDEA for a long period does it save the state of the IDEA project and all the results such that if there is a crash I can pick up from that point?

Curious why it is disabled by default and if there are any negatives of activating it?

It used to be that every time the program crashed you lost everything since the most recent time it cleanly exited, so I have gotten in the habit of saving my work by completely exiting and re-entering the program.

With the more recent versions of Aquarium this seems to be less necessary because it definitely saves something after each minimax step, and maybe even saves completely if you use Fill Subtree Power.

My best guess as to the answer to your question is that it doesn't do anything different if you have it enabled or not, but maybe more knowledgeable people will clarify this for us.

Plus my AQ has been very stable lately - any crashes I had were related to video issues (for some reason changing screen resolution sometimes crashed it) but that has not been an issue since getting my new PC. 
Just happened to notice the option and was wondering if I should activate it.  But I have not bothered under the theory if it isn't broke don't fix it.
