A manual rocking wah pedal can often be left on during parts of the solo where it's not being used, as long as it's left in a position that doesn't sound weird.
Auto and touch wah are effects like most other pedals (chorus, phaser, tremolo, etc.). They are either normally off or on, and most effect pedals that provide these will have a simple on/off stomp switch.

If a touch wah is set up carefully, you could leave it on all the time, as it's triggered by picking dynamics. So if you are picking carefully it may be possible to not trigger it, or to only trigger it slightly. But, normally, you would stomp on the button to turn it off if you weren't using it.

Touch and auto-wah are most commonly found on multi-fx pedals like the GT-1 or MS-3, or modelling amps like the Katana range.

Cheers,

Keith

Thanks, that's what I was unsure of.
