Radio can be turned on with no key in ignition

Is it normal for your stereo radio to be turned on with no key in ignition?

I locked the car with remote and stereo was still on?

Seems like this could be a battery problem.

It can be turned on without the key, however it should turn off if you compeltely turn the key to the left.

You can actually designate a duration of time for the radio to stay on, 15, 30, 45, 90 minutes... all with out the key in the ignition...

Please enlighten me about the radio off feature. Is it NAV headunit or business CD ?

Mine shuts off after 20 min...If I could make that 45, that would be GREAT !
