How dare they!  ;-)  What's the betting they forgot to amend the manual
to match?

Try C-c C-l `c-toggle-electric-state' to begin with.  If this works,
then all you need to do is switch this on in a hook function, something
like:

    (defun jn-electric-on ()
      (c-toggle-electric-state 1))
    (add-hook 'c-mode-common-hook 'jn-electric-on)

If this doesn't work, please send a dump of your CC Mode configuration,
created by C-c C-b.  Either send it off to address@hidden, or
change the To: address, or put and caste it to a different mail client,
or whatever.

The documentation for this is the CC Mode manual, which should have been
distributed together with your Emacs.
