User interface pops up at opening all doors, why?


I noticed that when opening a door, even the back doors, the screen pops on and the system starts up. When closing the door it shuts down.

In my case I often open the back door, put something in, close it and open the driver’s door. This means the screen always pops on and off and on again. In my opinion that is a waste of energy and I doubt this can be good for the computer system.

Is there a wat to turn this off, so eg you only have the screen turning on when opening the driver’s door?

The "computer" is always powered just a different levels and systems. The amount of energy use is minuscule and probably WAY under 1Wh per time it comes on/off. LED/LCD's are MTBF for hundred of thousands of cycles.
