The Auto-ISO in the menu functions to keep the shutter speed where you want it. In the menu where you set the Auto-ISO, below it, there is a place to set a minimum shutter speed you wish to maintain. So the Auto-ISO will change to maintain that.

The exception is if you use the buit-in flash indoors, in which case the auto-ISO always goes to 3200.

This is on my 1-yr old D3100. The auto-ISO behavior may be different in other models.
