Bluetooth BTUM for 745Li with Ignition Off

I have a 2004 745Li, installed the new Motorola BTUM bluetooth module. Works great, except when I turn the car off the phone is still connect to the car, such that the phone rings in the house, but it is connected to the car in the garage. How can I have the BTUM turn off when the car is turned off? Help....

Thanks,

Thanks for the answers but...

Thanks. The other BMW models power off the unit automatically when the car is turned off. Does anyone know how to set the BTUM to power off automatically?

I just bought the BTUM today and it's doing the same thing. My office is right above my garage so I'm close to the car. I just diable the bluetooth.. Kind of a pain, but its really nice while driving. I have a Blackberry 8700C and it downloaded the the complete address book. If you find out how to have it disable itself when the ignigtion is turn off, let me know.

Bothered me the entire time I had the BTUM in my '05. My den and the garage share a wall, so my cell would connect and disconnect all night while on the charger.
