Please provide more information: year, mileage, country, did it just start or has it been getting worse? Have you ever lubricated the ignition lock and if so with what? Have you talked to your dealer about a new lock?

Sounds like two seperate problems, unless the key in the ignition is causing some battery drain.
Can you say what make/model car you have, so others can help?
later,
