Default Change the way the engine is shut down

Hi

We have a Prius already and didn't want to get another one so we bought a new insight. We like the car a lot. Although it probably doesn't do as well as Prius on MPG (Prius I can get 59 MPG), Insight is still more fun to drive. Its a Honda.

The only 2 problems I have,

1. The AC shuts off when the engine is off.
2. The engine shuts off only when you step on the break.

Questions, are there ways to change the setting so for questions 1, keep the AC on no matter what (in eco mode). 2. The engine shuts off when I put the gear to N?

Thanks

To keep the engine running (and the A/C running) shift to S. I do this whenever it's hot and I am driving in multiple stop situation.

For AC to be on, the engine must be running. Not sure if the newer Insights have electric AC pumps like the CR-Z and some other hybrids which allows AC to be on even if the engine is off...

You have to be on the brake for the engine to be off, no other options

Can't really change anything as nothing can be programmed/changed. There's no settings.
