By default every 2 minutes, if "Preferences > Misc > Make periodic

Except if global record-enable is engaged:  In that case Ardour does a
.pending save (for "recovery") when engaging record-enable and not
auto-save until record-enable is set to off again.

Really, Ardour should not crash in the first place. What plugins are you
automating?  Is there a recipe to reproduce the crash? or can you
provide a backtrace: http://ardour.org/debugging_ardour
