You are probably going to need to addd the following to Rgonzo1971's suggestion, otherwise an error will occur if there is no comment.

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
With ActiveCell
    If Not .Comment Is Nothing Then
        .Comment.Shape.TextFrame.AutoSize = True
    End If
End With
End Sub
