you might have more luck searching for "auto" and "throttle" separately...

but then again, this is (well?) known in that craft, IIRC...
"You get more air close to the ground," said Angalo. "I read that in a book. You get lots of air low down, and not much when you go up."
"Why not?" said Gurder.
"Dunno. It's frightened of heights, I guess."

When I searched "Auto Throttle", it came up with even fewer results than "autothrottle"

And I was aware that there was an issue where the AT would just randomly go to idling, no matter which AT mode you were in. Is it possible that problem has morphed into this current one?

The autothrottle defaults to the speed entered in the Route Manager. If it is at 0, the autothrottle will select that at some point during the flight. Set a high enough cruise speed in the Route Manager (e.g. 320 kts). That will solve your issue. It seems 0 is selected as cruise speed when importing a flightplan. I didn't manage to solve it aircraft-side.

Why is this happening again?
Yesterday when landing at KMEM I shut off the FD switch, then disabled Autothrottle, that's keyboard E mapped to my yoke (at about 10 miles out) and just before landing (maybe at 300 to 500 ft) autothrottle engaged automatically. Before the E button on the keyboard was implemented I had to shut off A/T ARM L&R switches, this works but not user friendly!
It seems to me there is a code that's taking priority to keep A/T engaged.

Keep up the good work guys!!!!
