Mathematica uses the option AutoOpenPalettes to determine which palettes 
should open on startup.  This option is updated whenever you open or close 
palettes which show up in the File->Palettes menu.  So, if your palette is 
showing up there (based upon your description, I'd think it would be), then 
it should work.

Try evaluating...

Options[$FrontEnd, AutoOpenPalettes]

and see what gets returned, which may be enlightening.
