Key memory problems

Yes, I've already read other threads about this but I didn't see any consensus. Here's the setup:

1. A driver with one key has her seat and mirror settings. The idrive is set to recall those settings

2. The car is left unlocked for about 8 hours

3. A driver with a different key (and profile) opens the door

We expected the seat and mirror settings to be recalled from the key memory. But instead we find this happens only occasionally - most of the time the settings are not recalled.

But what's really annoying is that after starting the car, the profile of the correct key is shown - even though the seat and mirror setting were not recalled!

We're thinking maybe the car has gone into a deep sleep mode and is no longer listening for approaching keys?

Does anyone else have problems like this?
