No, it goes to sleep when the ignition is turned off, at least it doesn't appear to. The only connection is through the OBDII connection.
I mounted it directly above the center of the steering wheel on the dash using their horizontal surface mount.
I also used a low profile 90 degree OBDII connector cable to allow the fuse panel door to be closed with it connected.
I have my Solera in storage now or I'd take a photo for you.
I didn't get it until later this summer so I have not yet calibrated it for fuel consumption accuracy, DTE, etc. It is nice to see some of the other parameters like engine load, turbo boost, exhaust gas temperature, etc.
