Can I leave the air conditioning on with wife & dog in car momentarily as I get out (without it turning off)?

Hello, I'm trying to figure out how to leave the car's air conditioner on while I step out of the vehicle for 10 minutes or so. It gets annoying every time I briefly get out and everything shuts down then she has to figure out how to turn everything back on. I leave my keys in the car when I do this but, it still shuts down. I've read the manual but couldn't find anything and any help would be highly appreciated!

Is the 'immediate' climate control toggle supposed to keep things on without interruption if the driver leaves the vehicle? I still had all systems turn off when I hit that toggle as soon as I left the seat.

The only way I've found to keep things on continuously is to lift my butt off the seat before opening the door. It's... awkward. I was also then not able to turn the car off without sitting back in the seat, closing the door, opening the door, then getting out of the seat. 😀
