Help with IB and auto turn off


I know many posts have been written of this but none have helped me so far. First of all maybe i dont need to turn it off but i am using ninja trader and starting my strategies from 'wait for flat line' so when i get disconnected every day it messes my strategies up as those that have executed will not unless i change setting 'immediately submit live working orders' which means i cannot start any new strategies until the old ones are finished and i can change back my settings.

So to overcome this i want to be connect to IB 24 hours which obviously is slightly tricky. I have downloaded and tried to get IB Controller to work for about 2 days with no real luck other than it did once enter my username and password automatically but now cannot even get to that stage.

So i was wondering if any kind people on here could offer me a solution as to how to run my strategies so disconnects would be fine or if anyone has some simple steps to set up IB controller or any other solutions?

Thanks for any help!
