It will only stop/start in D mode and wont do it with AC on or when the outside temp drops to a certain level. There are a few other instances when it won't come on either....i just turn mine off anyway!

With regards to the auto transmission - one of the things i like so much about DCT is that the car does not 'creep' when you take your foot off the brake like a standard auto which means you can hold the car on the brakes at the lights like a manual without the engine taking any strain (even though it is minimal)
