If you are not using the console in treehouse's workspaces you will not be able to autocomplete unless you install additional software. With regard to the current question you are asking about only being able to autocomplete when you write a significant amount of the document.getElementById etc the reason it may not autocomplete is because there are additional statements that are similar ie document.getElementByClassname etc. If you write document.getElementBy... it will not know what you intend to write until you complete the end of that word.
