No, I always know what the automated systems are doing.

It's happened to me a few times, but not very frequently.

The automated systems occasionally get too far ahead of me, but I soon catch up.

It happens fairly often during the critical phases of flight or during abnormal/emergency ops, when the workload is heavier.

The more I fly the airplane, the less this happens.

Only if no fuel to go around or all alternates severly blocked in. Any pilot who allows an airplane not to have fuel for a alternate flight needs to find another career..
