Did it used to work? I ask because I didn't think BMW introduced the auto-start/stop until sometime in 2012.

Ok, strike off the obvious;
1) is the button set to on?
2) with the cooler mornings, is the engine warmed up enough for it to kick in?
3) is you battery low?

First, there are certain conditions where auto start-stop is prevented from working. In that case, I believe you'll see a slash through the lit icon on the dashboard. Also, I had a 2011 535i, it did not have auto stop-start, and it was not an option. Maybe European models were different?
