I run auto-fire on all but my torps, As I like to fire my torps manually after I use full spread or volley. Rather than waiting for a torp to reload, then oh crap I forgot to push full spread and now I have to wait for them to reload again.

It gives me greater control over them and I fire them when an enemies shield/shields are down, giving me better dmg.

Having your energy weapons on auto-fire is IMO the correct method. Because you don't want to be trying to manually firing them, as well as hitting the hotkeys, turning your ship and turning your camera angle to look around. It can cause more problems, but thats my opinion. Kudos to those that can do all that and not make any mistakes.
