the problem with autocontrast is that you cant watch the picture or
the clipping display (when holding the alt key) if there are
important pixels before the "hill"

It shouldn't matter. Auto-contrast and auto-levels will not clip any detail at all if your default setting tells it not to. My understanding of the difference between auto-levels and auto-contrast is that auto-levels will move the sliders in to the lightest light and darkest dark in each color channel independently, and auto-contrast will move them in the same amount in each channel, using the darkest dark and the lightest light overall. If you're only moving the sliders in to the point where you don't clip any information, just set clipping off and use whichever auto-xxx that does what you want.
