Our car has auto-cut off, but I usually disable it (a switch behind the gear stick), because I don't like the idea of depleting the battery charge. Perhaps I'm worrying unnecessarily.
I know they're designed that way, but I'm not concerned about a slight waste of fuel that it would save. If i were stuck in a long traffic jam for some considerable time, OK, but not for a minute or two.
