I've got a 2007 Prius, and was just wondering.....will the interior dome and rear hatch lights shut off automatically if a door (s) is left open for an extended period of time? Some cars I've had did, and others didn't.
Thanks, Blue Flash

Nope.

Welcome to deadbatteryville, especially since the 12v battery is smaller and has less capacity than on other cars.

hatch, I don't think so but the dome lights will after 20 mins (not the maplights so keep that in mind!)

Always lock the car no matter where you park or for how long. If the hatch or any doors are open it will give a long warning beep.

Note that the auto-shutoff of the headlights only works when you leave through the driver's door. Some have killed their battery by leaving through the passenger door.
