deb stable non-free
deb testing non-free

Which you do, of course.  Unless you have a VERY good reason, there
should never be a time where you don't want automatic updates on all of
your software.  Security vulnerabilities pop up with alarming
regularity, in the most innocuous of packages.

And you rarely should need to change sources.list itself - you're much
better off putting them in individual files in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/
for each different repository you use.
