Turn off air suspension for in/out up/down

Wondering if anyone knows a way to turn off the air suspension's in/out up/down feature?

I would like the air suspension to level the vehical (so I don't want to pull the plug on the whole system) but I don't want it to go down everytime I park, then go back up again every time I get in and drive off.

More just trying to think of ways to save the compressor and such, we don't need it to be lower to get in and out.

Thoughts?

You must have a leak. The air suspension should not leak down as you indicated when the truck is switched off. My vehicle has sat for several days and this has never occurred.

Nope, no leak. Seems to be a factory thing for my '98 EB. When you start the truck and open/close the drivers door, as long as no other doors are open, the truck "lifts" it's self 2-3 inches, it stays like that for the whole time you are driving. Then, when you park and turn off the motor, the truck "lowers" it's self 2-3 inches, it stops this process when any door is open. I can hear the valves clicking and the air venting, it stops when ever there is a door open. It's to assist you getting in/out of the truck, if your short that is.... It does not go "slammed" down to the frame like all the air is vented out, just 2-3 inches down.
