I'm sure that this is a convenience feature so that if you are sitting in the car waiting for junior to finish his (or her) ballet lesson, you can charge your phone or listen to your ipod without needing the ignition turned on.

My E92 does this for (I think) 20 minutes. Then when it shuts off the computer makes all kinds of noises and the fan comes on and wakes me (yes, I nap in the car sometimes). I'm hoping that my F10 will be a bit quieter.
