Oh have not experienced that. But, you are right, normal shutdown wattman retains settings. If it does not, then it could be a hardware issue. Not necessarily something is broken but could be an AIB thing.

Wattman won't reload the profile for me during a crash and I had that issue with AB when pushing memory too far back in my 7970ghz days (reboots as soon as it hit's windows due to pushing my mem too far)

Not going to argue about the sliders though, I've always preffered the easier adjustments in AB.

No need to click the profiles. Settings stay even after shutdown, reboot, and restarts.

Not sure what to tell you. But both my navis use Wattman only for profiles. Settings stay even after reboot. I have to use Wattman just to undervolt cos both are reference. Unless you are talking about other settings like oc'ing, power limit, etc. I never touch those.
