could be several things. If it just shuts off with out starving for fuel (acts like you turned it off with the key)could be an electrical problem. If it has points I would check the wires from the coil to be sure they are good and have clean connection. You should also check your ground wires and your ignition switch.

If the car is starving for fuel it will feel just like you ran out of gas, bucking.

Generally cruise will turn itself off when the car is turned off, but it is always good to be sure, I always turn it off when I am not using it.

If your radio will not shut off when you turn off the car, there may be an issue with the wiring. If your car has the feature where your radio will not turn off until you open the door, that is normal. However, if you have an aftermarket radio, the wiring is most likely the cause.

the Clock is probably wired to the ignition and power is turned off every time you turn off the Car there fore you have to reset the clock.
