Cars in for a service next week, should have been last week but cancelled, they only have one fitter that is trained on Hybrid and he was off sick.
So before it goes in, any Hybrid owners had their car drop out of "Ready" to just ignition on after standing still for a few minutes?
To clarify, the car is "Ready", in Electric mode with plenty of charge, if I stand still for a few minutes, I can go to move off and find that I have to "start" the car again, as the ignition is on but the car is no longer "Ready".
If that makes sense.

Hope you got it fixed. I've never experienced this one yet, but maybe because I'm not generally sitting around with the ignition on, stationary. Seems not unreasonable for the car to decide that you're not going anywhere and stand down because its getting bored (technical explanation there... LOL) but I assume that when it's on, it will be running all the systems which will eat up a fair bit of juice even going nowhere..
