Going to sleep...Powering down

Anyone know if the car goes to sleep/powers down sooner if it is locked, rather than keeping it unlocked...We may sometime leave the car for a week to a month without driving. I heard that if the car is unlocked, it will wake itself up periodically to do a system check, but if locked, it won't wake up...

Does anyone know about this?

I've been checking battery voltage after leaving s28i alone locked for up to 3 days, and I catch voltage at 12.2 which can ruin battery if there too long.

The manual says you can leave for 1 month, but I don't see leaving a week even locked.

If locked the alarm is armed, but 2 out of 3 parts of alarm like the motion can be shut off by pushing lock button again within 10 seconds.

I leave for a few months at a time, so I'll be taking the neg cable off a lot.

Sorry to not answer your unlock question. Anyone else know?

That's a good question, and I'm sorry to say I can't answer it. I will tell you that waking up the modules does take a toll on the battery's charge level. I did my fall detailing last month over two days, and moving the car in and out of the garage a few times along with repeatedly opening the doors as one would in the process of a thorough detailing drained the battery to the point where I got a low voltage warning and the car would barely crank. A day on the trickle charger was all it needed, but I learned a lesson from it.

If you aren't going to drive it for a week or more, why would you even consider leaving it unlocked?
I don't see the benefit in that. What am I missing?
