......pretty basic but my led wont stay lit without a waitcnt or repeat ect. Shouldnt it stay lit until i tell the pin to go low?

The reason the LED goes out is that there's an implied RETURN statement at the end of every method including the first (or only) one. The first (main) method in a program is actually called by the Spin interpreter initialization routine which sets up this return so it does a COGSTOP on the cog running your program and that clears all the I/O registers including DIRA making all the I/O pins into inputs.
