Auxillary sockets

Hope someone can answer this for me.
I have read that the auxillary sockets in the B-max turn off after a specific time, is this the case ?
Also when you unlock the car does this send power back to the sockets ?
The reason for my question is that when i leave my car i unplug the cameras from the aux socket and they power down after a set time. When i get back into the car and plug them back in again, without even putting the key in the ignition, they both fire up and begin recording as though the power is there all the time at the aux socket.
It's not something i have come across before, other cars have been either permanently on or only on with the ignition, but these seem to be live before i put the key in.
Any thoughts ?

Hi the sockets turn off after about 10 mins and come back on when you unlock doors with remote. ken

as above, the sockets should turn off shortly after its parked and locked. and turn on again when 'activated' so you shouldn't need to unplug the camera when you park.
