    No, I don't think they all mean the same, although all could fit the situation. Here is how I would interpret the three sentences in the context given:

    I haven't finished writing the results, but i have to go...

    1. I'll leave it to you....I'll leave writing the results to you. (for you to do)
    2. I'll leave it with you...I'll leave the work with you. Perhaps you will be able to finish, perhaps not. In any case it will be your responsibility.
    3. I'll leave you to it....I'll let you get to it. I'll let you get started (finishing the work).

    They're all fine. The last one is the most natural and the first the least.
