Question Clio Stop/Start Unavailable.

Hi guys, this is my first post and it isn't for happy reasons I'm afraid.

A week today I received my brand new 64 plate Clio Dynamique Medianav, 1.5 Diesel.

So far I really like it.

However, this evening coming home from work as I came of the motorway I pulled up to the lights, dropped into neutral and let out the clutch.
I got the Message "Stop/start unavailable"
According to the manual this is normal and from all the plausible reasons the only one I can see is the "engine is in standby" not sure what that means though?

Anyway I stopped off at Tesco and as I was getting out of the car I noticed a strong smell, a bit like burnt toast/melting plastic.
I couldn't find any evidence of anything being wrong.
Went into tesco and then got back in the car feeling worried. Drove the long way home to test the stop/start and it started working again and the smell had disappeared.

Anyone here have any idea what this could be?

P.S. - It may also be worth noting that on the motorway I had used the cruise control. Not sure why it may be relevant, but as much info as possible right?
