Set the variable auto-save-timeout to the value you want, in seconds.

However, the default value is 30 sec, which is less than your 5
minutes.  So the default should be good for you.  You may wish to make
the value of auto-save-interval smaller -- it is the number of
keystrokes after which Emacs will auto-save.  The default is 300.

Read about auto saving in the Emacs manual.
