Sunroof blind has a mind of its own?

I keep finding the sunroof blind partially closed to varying and random degrees.

Has anyone noticed the blind partially closed when returning to the car having left it fully open?

If you click the lock button a 2nd time after locking the car the blind would close until you take your finger off the button. Is it possible you're doing this, maybe double checking the car is locked?

This is true but it happens without clicking the lock button a second time. If you hold down the lock button to lock all doors and fold the wing mirrors, as soon as the wing mirrors are closed, the sunroof closes and then the sun blind closes. The key is to release the lock button as soon as the wing mirrors are closed and then the sun blind will stay fully open. I have mastered this but alas mrs sfax has not

I don't have folding mirrors so I wasn't aware of the way they work. The answer has to be around use of the locking button almost for sure.
