Keyless/Security on 2001 TL

Hello All,
We were out washing the new (previously owned) car last week and we were pretty sure that the car was locking the doors automatically. But when I checked to see if it was doing this last night, it
was not.
Is this car capable of locking the doors automatically or were we hallucinating last week? If it does lock the doors automatically, will it arm the factory security system automatically? Is there a trick to get it to lock the doors by itself?

Thanks for any help anyone can provide,

On mine the doors lock automatically only if you unlock them using the remote without opening a door. Approximately one minute later they automatically lock (and the alarm goes off if the trunk is open).

Thanks for the info. I think that was the case.
