Why is it that some of my purchases for shares go in to positions and others stay in orders?  What is the difference and why does this happen?

If you click on deal then your order will be opened straight away. If you click on the order tab it will give you an order to open which means only when the market hits your price (or worse for a stop order) (or better for a limit order) will the order be executed. If you're trying to long/ short a market when the market isn't open it may direct you to the order tab. 

All the best
