I think there is a bug in LR 4.3. When I click "auto" in development, The exposure slider doesn't work until I click "auto" a second time. I usually click auto and then make further adjustments and there was no problem with this in LR4.2. The bug seems to occur when 'soft proof' is selected before selecting auto. I also added a "lens correction and remove chromatic aberration" to a user preset that is applied when importing images.

My usual workflow is 1) develop, 2) click soft proof box, 3) click auto. At this point the soft proof is created and the slider button in the develop section will slide but produce no change in the image, 4)click tone, 5)click auto. At this point the sliders will work. System: Windows 7 pro, 64 bit Nvidia m555 graphics card in Dell XPS laptop.

I have a similar system and cannot duplicate your results. The slider is responsive immediately here.

I am looking for more specific causes. With a file that has the user preset added on import, but no other editing, I find that checking the soft proof button and then selecting auto will adjust settings, but if I then slide exposure button, it has no effect until I cancel the auto adjustment (I use the tone button). When I use auto after that, the sliders will work correctly. If I open a file that has adjustments set, there is no problem. I downloaded LR 4.4RC and can reproduce the problem in that version.

Why are you soft proofing before developing? Soft proofing is to be used for printing, to see how your print will react to the paper.
