But only if you say "no" when being queried if the changes should be
saved to the file.  Well, in that case it might be ok not to auto-save,
because the user already stated that he doesn't want to persist his
changes.  But I don't see how that could be done easily.  One way would
be to write your own version of `server-kill-emacs-query-function' and
replace the original with yours in `kill-emacs-query-functions'...

You could also disable auto-saving completely:

,----[ C-h v auto-save-default RET ]
| auto-save-default is a variable defined in `files.el'.
| Its value is t
| 
| Documentation:
| Non-nil says by default do auto-saving of every file-visiting buffer.
| 
| You can customize this variable.
`----

But I don't think it's a good idea to turn off auto saving.

Bye,
