^^ mine does that, if i turn of the vehicle and take out the key, but dont open the door(s) the vehicle gives me about 20 secs of power to windows/sunroof. Only after you open a door or outside of the 20 sec window all power to sunroof and windows are gone.

i would be ok with that... but it doesnt stop after 20 sec... i will come to my car in the morning and open the door and be able to put the windows down right away with out starting or putting the key in the ignition
