Flash in Manual Mode

I do a lot of shooting with the SB 800 and now the D300 combination and have a quick question about shooting flash in the Manual mode.

It is my understanding that the SB 800 in the TTL mode for indoor shooting will monitor the flash output when shooting in the Manual Model.

I shoot at f5.6 - 6.3 with a shutter speed of 1/60 - 1/80 (group shots no sports on this one) using spot and or average mode. Last night I had 10 shots with blown highlights at the same distances (no change in ambient lighting) but the others were exposed properly????
Flash compensation did not change in the above shots.

My question do most shoot flash in Manual Mode on your cams? I do know some shoot in aperture mode doing indoor photography and using TTL on the Sb 800.

Many Thanks,
MarvC
