4) Makes sense, wouldn't want to mistakenly go into AB on a flight deck.

Also, do you have your HOTAS thrust curve set up linearly? I struggle with throttle control on the F18.
What throttles do you use? If Wartog HOTAS, you need to bind the cutoff/idle to each, the left and right throttle levers. Otherwise, throttles will not be able to place into cutoff.
