2005 545i Navigation Won't Turn Off !!! Help !!

My 2005 545i navigation system has a problem.. When I turn off the engine and pull the key out of the ignition the navigation system stays on. If the stereo is on the music continues playing and will not turn off even after 1 hour.. What can I do ?? Any ideas ?? maybe disconect the battery to reset the computer??
Thanks..I'm waiting here so I don't end up with a dead battery..

Take it into the dealer for service - there is a software update that should fix the problem. There is also a way to reset iDrive w/out disconnecting the battery. Its like hitting Ctrl+Alt+Delete on your computer. Ctrl+Alt+Del = Radio power + CD eject + DVD eject

Are you using Bluetooth paired to a cell phone? This happened to me once. Even though I didn't have a call in progress, when I turned off my phone, the car went to sleep.

Was this ever resolved? Did the reset work at all for you?

Yes .. Your suggestion of resetting the navigation center by turning off the stereo and cd/dvd eject seemed to work..Since then I have not had the problem again. I am also using a paired bluetooth cell phone..
Thanks again..Great info..
