Here is what I came up with....I do change things like exposure once and a while for different sets but basically run it on 'auto'.

*pop up menu*(directional buttons on the back of camera)
Flash mode; auto
timer; off
macro; off
Exp +/-; -1/3 (this is my main setting for really close to avoid flashburn/washout - you can always adjust brighter later, on the computer, but no coming back from flashburn)

*Shooting menu*
Image mode; 6mp(normal or high -your preference..I do high but think it makes it a touch slower but negligable)
white balance; auto
continuous; single
bss; off
color options; standard(sometimes vivid - I test at set to decide - usually just standard is fine)

*setup menu*
menus; text
quick startup; on
welcome screen; should be 'off' with quick startup enabled
photo info; show info(what i set it at...fine if on auto info...can't determine difference in speed)
brightness; lowest setting(save some juice)
date imprint; I like it off but some guys like the date and time - your choice
button sound; off
shuttersound; off
volume; minimum/off
blur warning; off
auto off; 1 minute
sleep mode; off
auto transfer; on

Battery type; what you use... I use nimh for internals and either alkaline(extreme cold weather) or nimh for exts and set the camera for nimh...these cams are ok on battery usage for having extending lenses compared to some others.

couple other notes:
--I don't use a slave with my L11....if paired with a slave then you will want to make some changes to exposure and iso and white balance perhaps
--disable the date counter(may not have to worry about it unless the previous owner turned it on)
--lens extension speed is slowed down significantly when very cold(low teens and colder) - just so you know.
--I love this camera(for the pics it gets for me - it's perfect for the up close sets on grouse logs and carcass piles) :D

Whenever U Can - GET OUTSIDE!
