That's what I like about my Saabs. With the headlight switch in the headlights on position they go off when you turn the car off and come back on when you start it, cannot be left on. I normally drive with the headlights on and do not use the sidelights position. You also cannot remove the key unless the shift is in Park (or 2nd gear in a manual).
As I regularly drive in Europe I fitted day time running lights in parallel with my side lights so its easy for me to forget that they are on - however as they are all LED's now, the risk of a flat battery is much smaller
