The HipChat for Windows client caches some local data related to automatic logins under %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Atlassian\HipChat\, but there's also authentication and session information stored server-side. There could have been an issue with either side of the connection to interrupt the auto-login.
If you're frequently running into this issue, it might be a good idea to try reinstalling the client in Windows to see if the situation improves.
If not, I would recommend checking with colleagues that are connecting to the same HipChat Group/Server to see if there might be an issue with the server-side; otherwise, I'd look for other potential culprits on your workstation (anti-virus software can sometimes cause odd behavior, for example).
I hope that helps.
