Default autosave and plugin installing

two questions
1. Is there an autosave feature that will keep my idiot self from losing a lot of work when i forget to save?

2. I downloaded gi joe for an easy way to light my models for display, but i have no idea how to activate it(what folder(s) to put the files in). It has one .mel file and 2 .ma files. I dont know if thats important. When its installed, will it be a menu item, or do i need to learn some mel scripting. Any insight into plugins would be great.
What I lack in skill I make up for with enthusiasm.

if you still need to know...

copy the script into your local maya folder. open maya, open Script Editor and type in the scriptfile´s name.

bsp. Gi_Joe.mel

type -> Gi_Joe
then goto SCRIPT - execute

or just type Gi_Joe and dragdrop it to the shelf to create a shelfbutton.
everything starts and ends in the right place at the right time.
