Shutting down (not just mute) the music without shutting down the infotainment system

I feel stupid for even asking this..... but how do I turn off the radio/music/Pandora without turning off the infotainment system? I know about the mute button will stop the noise, but when I check my phone it is still pulling either my songs from the memory or linking to Pandora.

Every time I start the car it immediately starts playing tunes via the Bluetooth connection, or the USB connection. It also happens with audio books. If I was listening to a book when I last used the car, it automatically starting playing the book again as soon as I start the car. If I shut down the whole system, I lose the access to car play for maps, calls and texts.

I feel like I am in a constant fight with the system to get it do what I want. There has to be something I am missing.

I wish the gen 1 would automatically find my phone and start playing Bluetooth from where I last left off. No, I have to hit the button on the steering wheel every time to cycle through the options to get to Bluetooth, and only after waiting 30 seconds or so after starting the car..
Does the USB not kick over automatically if you plug it in last? (I can't tell about streaming, since the '12s don't do that, but everything else switches if you connect a new thing while the infotainment is up and running. Plug in a thumb drive, it switches to USB. Plug a cord into the AUX jack, it switches. Put a disc into the slot, it switches to that.)
