I dont know if putting the autobox in neutral will prolong its life, what i do know is that it will help prolongen the life of your rotors because you dont have to use the brakes like you do when the autobox is in Drive when waiting for trafficlights , so the brakes can cool off evenly instead of getting bent by the difference of temperature on the rotors and where the brakepads are.

When i drove stick, i put it in neutral and depressed the clutch entirely when waiting somewhere for some reason. This will have less wear on certain parts of the clutch/trans system.
Anyone other ideas?
