Although several people have posted responses already, a better job of
covering the topic is the "How do I disable backup `auto-save-mode'?"
node in the Emacs FAQ.  Type "C-h F" to get into the FAQ, select the
"Common Requests" menu item, and from there select the 
"Disabling auto-save-mode" menu item.  [You might also be interested
in the "Disabling backups" node.]

Be well.
