I was able to automate the exit of a position with a manual entry. The key was to turn off the automatic management of the order and do it yourself.

protected override void Initialize() {
Unmanaged = true;

When I run the auto exit strategy, I pass in as a parameter how many shares I want to sell of that symbol. NT thinks the position is flat. When the exit signal is trigger, I send a SubmitOrder(), and set a flag for the loop to be false.

exitOrder = SubmitOrder(0, OrderAction.Sell, OrderType.Limit, Quantity, exitPrice, 0, "", "Exit");

Let me know if you need the code.

If you have the correct account and instrument, it's quite easy to grab the correct positions and manipulate them.
The advantage is that you can keep the orders managed. I do similar stuff with my vvMiniTradePanel...have a look at the code, it might be good for reference.
