You can change it. There is a HiddenSetting 
defaults to 400ms. ... That means: If you stop typing for longer than 400ms 
the draft tiddler will be stored. .. which may trigger a refresh of the 
visible tiddlers involved. Typing a new character will reset the timeout. 

You can set it to 10000 (= 10 seconds) or even higher. ....

In the contrary. ... Every time a tiddler is saved, it will be synced with 
the backend. .. If the backend is connected with a slow connection, you 
don't want this behaviour at all.
