Just how 'manual' should a beginner go?

The advantage of shooting in full manual (with the exception of auto-focus) is post processing. Let's say you are shooting a tree outside & want to try 5 different frames, having full manual means you would only really need to tweak exposure/contrast/etc on a single shot then replicate over to the other 4 and be 99% of the way there.

Shooting in P/Auto could give varying exposures & so editing may need to be done one by one!

Manual also comes into it's own for stitching panoramas :).
