The general public's perception of AP is that it does all the work between take-off and landing? Then surely the passengers of a plane wouldn't have problems with pilot and co-pilot leaving the cockpit and getting drunk partying with the flight attendants while the AP is doing it's thing....

Oh wait... I guess passengers wouldn't be amused by such behaviour.
