Unless you're concerned about oversubscribing the power capabilities of the switch auto should be sufficient.

That having been said, in my mind if you're not using a feature you should probably shut it off lest it randomly create a problem later on.

I disable inline power because I've had hp printer cards cause alot of squawking in my syslog.

but then again, I disable everything, including unused ports and run port security(really drives 'em crazy that they actually have to tell me when they are adding new devices.... like linksys's switches on someone's desktop :) .)
