Re: [DML] Re: Dead battery fix was:Lauren's Car

For what it's worth, Porsche has a function like this on their newer
cars - at least since 2004.  If you don't use the car in a week, it 
shuts down most of the electronic gadgets to preserve the battery.
If the car is locked, this means you have to use the key to open 
the door instead of the fob.  Once that is done, the car rearms for 
another week.
