Engine shut off when stopped

Ok, I realize that this is a nifty feature, especially when your on a highway or longer trips, but I live in a town and work the next city over, lots of starting and stopping. I'd LOVE to somehow program this feature to be off until I turn it on. I rarely remember to turn it off when I start the car and get a half mile from home at a stop light and car shuts down. For me, this feature is an inconvenience.
Can I set this so that when the car is started, by default, it's not activated?

You need to take it to the dealer and have it coded to remember last setting.
