The manual says that if the *.wps file is placed in
the /.rockbox directory then the *.wps will load on
subsequent restarts. People with Windows cannot name
a directory with a "." in the name. So, I created
a /rockbox directory then, I set the directory attributes to
hidden (kinda like the /.rockbox) but this doesn't work.
For autoloading wps files to work with windows, the
directory that the firmware looks in for the wps file
should not have a period "." in the name. Thanks.
This task depends upon

Windows ppl can. I am adding this as a question in the FAQ.

However, a limitation of your operating system is not reason
enough to change the way Rockbox performs.

You need to goto DOS (start->run->command) and create the
directory from there.
