Default Accessory power through ignition?

Left my windows down the other day, and I had to start the engine to be able to roll them up again. In my older Audi's, there was accessory ignition where all power items would work without having to crank the engine. Can this be done with the C7 with the push-button start?

All you have to do is have the key nearby, push the "Start" button without having your foot on the brake and that puts you in the accessory mode, and all the electronics (and windows) work.

But the auto headlights come on in the garage as well, seems like a design short coming.
