Sentry Mode - Turns OFF, Sometimes it stays ON...

I noticed recently (perhaps with V10?) that Sentry Mode stays ON but it also randomly turns OFF.

*Does anyone know what the default is? I would like to know if I can keep it ON, all the time.*

My car was hit in the parking lot earlier today but Sentry mode was OFF, to my surprise. The damage is not huge but I'm pretty annoyed since I parked a few rows away from the busy area to avoid door dings but someone still managed to tap my bumper; about a 8" x 1.5" scrap. Sadness...
