I don't know about that code, but there's a direct way to enable auto-save for a notebook -- presumably one you've already saved once: 0. Select the notebook. 1. In the Options Inspector, set the "Show option values" field to "Selected Notebook". 2. In the "Lookup" field, search for NotebookAutoSave. 3. Change the setting for NotebookAutoSave to True and Apply it. Now your notebook will indeed be saved anew each time you evaluate a new Input cell. (Forgive what may be excess detail above.)
