    I have a i Mac 10,1, core 2 duo with 4GB RAM.
    I have upgraded it from Snow Leopard Mac OS X 10.6.8 to Lion Mac OS X10.7.1

    I observed that my documents like Text Edit etc. are not getting auto saved.

    How can enable the auto saving and version creation feature of the Mac OS X Lion.
    Where can i find its enabling/disabling settings?

    Thanks for the help in Advance.

    Also, the auto saving does not start to auto save until you've saved the document at least once.

    So if you have an 'Untitled' document it isn't auto saved.

    My untitled docs are "saved" . . . That is if I close Pages or TextEdit those untitled docs will open back up intact if I exited the programs with those docs still open.
