    When wife is grocery shopping, I stay in auto and read. Is there any way to turn off everything?

    Sure. From the owner's manual:

    Although usually not needed, you can power off Model S while you are still sitting in the driver’s seat. Touch Controls > E-Brake & Power Off > Power Off. Model S automatically powers back on again if you press the brake or touch anywhere on the touchscreen.

    ...or if the display bugs you, put it into screen cleaning mode (from the Controls > Displays settings)...
