    During the scene when Sentinel went on a rampage in the N.E.S.T. base, I keep wondering where were the Autobots. I mean shouldn't they have at least tried to stop Sentinel or at most protect and help the soldiers evacuate.

    Lets see:

    Optimus - still a few minutes away
    Bumblebee - flipped over a fence during Sentinel's betrayal
    Ratchet - possibly with Optimus
    Que - ????
    Dino - was seen driving into the base before Sentinel's betrayal
    Sideswipe - seen turning behind Sentinel and possibly driving into base

    Ratchet, Que, Sideswipe and Dino were in the base before it happened. When SP came in flipping out they probably booked because they didn't know what the hell to do.

    Since Bumblebee like to use movie quotes to talk, I wouldn't be surprised if he patched one together and radio'd the others about what happened. They might have tried to fire on Sentinel, but I'm guessing they probably bailed out, seeing as he would have no problem shooting them.

    That was after Sentinel Prime got away giving his ultimatum after 200 Decepticons came over via Space Bridge.

    I am gonna guess that Bumblebee booked right a he escaped Sentinel primes fire. Ratchet and the others either saw or heard what had happened to ironhide and wee likely scared after he out of all them bit the rust. It would have been nice for them to leave a note at the door for Mearing something like "DO NOT PASS...BOT GONE WILD"

    wasn't that the scene where they realized that the Decepticons were going to come after sentinel?

    they were trying to figure out where where the heck sentinel was, then with Bumblebee, Sideswipe, and Dino, escorted him back to base.

    Bumblebee drove inside while the others stayed outside most likely to secure the perimeter with the other Autobots to protect sentinel/Nest hq (was Ironhide inside the base before they arrived, or was he escorting Sentinel too?).

    that's what I remember happening, but I could be wrong.

    That and Sentinel was supposed to be their original leader who Optimus clearly trusted. Even Ironhide trusted him enough to turn his back on him.

    Would you know what to do if someone you thought was on your side and held in the same high reguard as Optimus outta nowhere goes bersek and murders one of your strongest soldiers in cold blood/enegon then proceeds to tear things up with the clear threat that if you get in the way you're next?

    I think you'd wanna pull back and minimise losses until you get an explination and decide on the next course of action.

    Ironhide was there because him and Sideswipe engaged 2 Dreads, then Ironhide went back to protect Sentinel. BB and Ironhide where with Sentinel, then Ironhide dies and BB escapes, the other Autobots where probably getting the hell outta there.
