The connection is always 'on' but you yhave to tell the computer to connect. Drop the connection icon into your start-up folder. OTOH surely click and wait 5 seconds is not too arduous? ;-)))

There is also an a check box in one of the connection options, that allows automatic reconnection if the connection is dropped

I would suggest that you do not tick the automatic connect box, as this could give you a connection when you may not require it. Best to know what is going on before reconnecting, more so if it is dial-up. I assume that you are using the Tiscali 3x ADSL dial-up service.

Open up IE and go to Tools - Internet Options - Connection.

Choose your Tiscali connection and make the it default. Then choose 'always dial my default connection' then when your computer detects it needs the Internet it will connect via Tiscali.

You can tick the "auto connect" box if you want but it is unlikely to save you any time.
