In my Model 3, the mirrors always folded when I parked anywhere, and I even had an option to exclude the fold in my home location. This was great. I don't see that option in Y. Or is it hidden somewhere? Along with lane change, is this also an FSD only option?

I don't understand this option. In my Model 3, I believe I had the reverse. It folded everywhere except at my home.
Maybe it is a new feature. I know that Tesla added a feature where you can specify not to automatically lock the vehicle upon exiting when parked at home (useful if you always park inside a garage at your home, no need to always be folding and unfolding the mirrors.)

From the manual -- "Both exterior mirrors can automatically fold inward whenever you exit and lock Model Y. When you unlock Model Y, the exterior mirrors then automatically unfold. To turn this feature on or off, touch Controls > Quick Controls > Mirrors > Mirror Auto Fold"

I have mine set to auto fold but have the car set to not lock at home. Doing this also keeps the mirrors from auto folding at home.

ArchieDale: Does the car fully go to "sleep" if it isn't locked?
Yes, to the best of my knowledge it does. I have yet to download an app like TeslaFi to be 100% sure but based on the wake up time after the car has been sitting overnight is appears that it is asleep. I do also have sentry mode set to be off when at home.

Yes; I have my Model Y set to not lock when parked in my home garage. I have the Amazon Echo Auto device installed in my Model Y, whenever the Model Y powers up the 12V accessory outlet the Echo Auto device powers on I get a message from the Alexa app on my Apple Watch that Amazon Alexa Auto is ready to go. This happens about once every 24 hours whether or not my Model Y is plugged in.

When I requested the mirrors fold at my home location, the can asked if I wanted to auto-fold them at that location every time. Not sure if it only does that the first time, though.
