MK8 Start-Stop Function Stays Off?

On the MK7 to turn off the engine auto start-stop function, was as easy as clicking the button next to the gear stick.. however unfortunately it wouldn't stay off, and reset each time you restarted the car.

Now I understand in the mk8, you now need to access this option through multiple levels in the touch screen. Does it REMEMBER this selection the next time you turn the car on?

The Start-Stop feature turns the vehicle's engine off when you come to a stop and then restarts it when your foot is taken off of the brake. This supposedly saves fuel, I however found it incredibly annoying.
