I use:
(setq make-backup-files nil)
in my .emacs file instead of auto-save-mode. This way, my work is still auto-saved in a temp file(those #file# files), but I don't end up with all of the "~ files".

In your .emacs you need
(auto-save-mode ARG)

If ARG is positive then it is on, anything else and it is off.
