i have not heard of auto-depart but more of a assisted take off like Slawko mentioned. but most planes built from the early '80s can indeed do an autoland but the gear, flaps, thrust reverser and some other things like the non-smoking sign / seatbelt sign has to be done manually.
however, auto-depart is "assisted" after entering info into the FMC (Flight Management Commands) and this is done on most flights capable of doing such. but, autoland is only used under bad weather conditions according to aviation law of most countries.
for example, me and my dad was on TG429 two or three weeks ago, an Airbus A300-600R from Bangkok to Penang (a malaysian island) and when the plane arrived at the island, it circuited the island for 45 minutes due to the low visibilty and strong winds contributed by the heavy thunderstorm. and i think the plane started to run out of fuel or something ( i am not sure) the pilot then attempt to land. when the plane was below minimum, 200feet, where i can see the industrial estates, the planes started to lose control and were not align the runway due to the very strong winds and heavy rain. the clever captain was not nervous so he push the throttle forward and aborted take-off on runway 22 which does not have instrument for Autoland. Luckily the thai captain did not pull the nose before applying thrust or it would end up with a stall like happened to a China Airlines A300 in Japan which claimed lives. the wind direction allowed landing on the other end of the runway, Rwy 04 which has ILS. The plane then flew into rwy 04 with autoland and guess what, the weather conditions at this end of the runway was way better than the other. when the plane was above the sea, and i think less than 200ft above sea level, the autopilot pulled the nose up around 8-10 degress accompanied by the increasing speed. the throttle was pushed and the plane came to a touch and thrust reverser were applied immediately by the crew. but the plane came to a halt after a very hard time braking at the end of the 11000 foot long runway.
ok, end of story.
