There is no reason to go Auto.
Auto is not a magic bullet. Their algorithms are still a heuristics based work in progress and so they don't work for everyone. Also, some people have pressure change induced microarousals which disrupt sleep quality and make you feel crap in the morning even though AHI looks really good.
If your needed fixed pressure is not tolerable, then Auto is a trade off you can make.
Now, I do agree with you on this Ash. Some people really do well on straight pressure. But now knowing that cpap can cause glaucoma due to increased eye pressure, it makes more sense to me to see if the lowered pressure of auto works first rather than going with straight at a higher pressure.
