As you seem to already have figured out in the comments, Full auto forces a number of settings on you. Many cameras allow you to create your own programs, so if the D5100 has that feature, you could create a Full auto program but with continous shooting.
You can use a wired remote release that has a built in intervalometer, such as this fairly inexpensive one or this one. Regardless of the brand name stamped on them, they all seem to be made identically. You then set the camera to Bulb and let the timer in the remote open and close the shutter.
