Door Locks Driving Me Nuts!

You would think that having lived with this issue for four years in my recently departed 335i that I would be used to it by now. But my new 535i suffers the same stupid problem: There's no way to unlock all of the doors when the engine turns off or the car is put into "Park". Despite my best attempts to always remember to hit the "Lock/Unlock" button on the dashboard when exiting the car, I continue to forget and when I go to open the back door to get something out, the darn thing is locked! Every other car I've owned for the past fifteen years can be set to unlock all the doors automatically, but for some unknown reason BMW refuses to sign on to this convenient option. Is anyone aware of a way to set the locks up to do what I want? If it's in the owner's manual, I sure as heck can't find it.
