Hi eric, I've added it to the wishlist here:

But so far I just have not heard from very many people asking about that feature.

One problem with it, is that it can be a somewhat disruptive mechanism when it kicks in especially with large models where saving may take a bit of time.

If your house or office is prone to having power failures, I'd definitely recommend a battery backup power supply (also called an Uninterruptible power supply or UPS), like this:

They will usually have them at an office supply store as well. That will give you at least a few minutes to save your work and shut down your computer when the power goes out.

That's saved me more than once before myself!
