I don't have the heated steering wheel, but I'm wondering, do you usually leave it on the whole time you're driving? For example I turn off my heated seats after 10 minutes or so, after the cabin has warmed up. Point is, I wonder if most people turn off the wheel after a few minutes also, making the "stay on" a moot point. You'd have to turn it on next time anyway.
