The Volvo S60 I drive at times is sort of like that...
OF COOOURSE, the only time the motor goes into "sleep" mode is at a traffic light, therefore not being dangerous and not having PS, PBrakes or that jerk doing the "bumpstart".

When you go to the store you park where you can see the traffic light.

This engine aint starting until that light is green.
