The alarm and motion sensors apparently activated and the alarm went off after about 30 seconds and some dog movement. With a passenger in the front seat and locking from the central locking button, that didn't happen -- so not sure if it's the interior lock, the seat, or both.

Not sure if anything about Comfort Access would change the above (mine has it).

I've done similar and been about 100m away and the car continued to run. I expect that's way out of range of the key. Was away at least 10 min and the car was still running.
Were there any warnings on the idrive screen after any of your scenarios?
