also may be my question was to ask - is it possible to have a web application that has a part that is running similar to a server application (which will not turn on and off when page requested/close).

There is no reason to hold a connection from your web server to the WCF server. It just boils down to an HTTP request.

For your 2nd question, a web page can return a response to the user and continue to do processing. However, the browser will not be able to reconnect to that process since the response has been returned.

You can also fork off a thread for processing. Consider the context your prosess is running under.

You can do some tricks with cache to start up an asynchronous process periodically. What you do is stick an object (it doesn't matter what) into cache with an expiration time of when you want your process to run and set the cache expiration event to that process. The process should verify the reason it is being called if necessary (there are a few different reasons).
