How often WLP prompts for Fidelity login? I left WLP keep running in the past few days and saw the login prompt popup a few time. Does it mean WLP cannot be used for completely unattended auto trading?

The login prompt is not haphazard, it's very deterministic. It's a result of one of these actions (if you're not already logged in):

1. You start the first streaming chart
2. You start the Strategy Monitor
3. You select a Live account in the Accounts tool

Any of the above could be the result of opening a Workspace.

4. And of course, when you click the Login button

So there is no such thing like periodical (e.g. 24 hours) login requirement?

Probably. Call Fidelity WL Support if you need details (I don't have them).
