Default radio turns off with ignition

When I turned my ignition off this morning instead of the radio staying on for a set amount of time as usual it turned off. Does anyone know what would cause this? Is there a timer switch somewhere that'* not working? Any information would be appreciated.

Thank You

Was one of your doors opened slightly? Has it happened again?

That would be my bet. One door slightly open, or a faulty door limit switch.

I went around the car and opened and closed all the doors and the radio stills turns off with the ignition. Sometihing else I've notice which may be completely unrelated is my keyless entry won't unlock/ lock the doors or open the trunk. I checked the batteries and they still have a full charge on them. Could these two problems be related?

There is a fuse or relay for the Retained Accessory Power, correct? Who knows where it is?

I have this same problem. Sometimes the radio will stay on, sometimes it wont. It is completely random for me.
