The radio should switch off when you switch the ignition off and vice versa. You should also be able to switch it on without the ignition but it will only work for 20 minutes in order to save the battery.
Is the radio holding it memory OK for programmed stationed? Has it always been like this since you got the car or is it a recent problem?
P.S. Do you have the code for the radio and do you know if an after-market radio was fitted previously?
