The stereo has 2 feed wires - 1 thru ignition so that it goes on/off with the car, and 1 permanent live so that you can switch it on without the key in (and so it remembers radio stations etc). My first port of call would be checking the fuse which is switched thru ignition, as it seems you need to manually switch on/off.
The stereo should switch itself off after about 20-30 mins if it hasn't got power from the ignition wire (even if you're driving).
