What's the limit on keyless driving?

This is a silly question, but I'm curious. The other day, I got in the car, started it with the push button, and got out. A few minutes later I told my wife, "Hey, hop in there and see if you can drive off without the key fob." I kept the key in my pocket and didn't get in the car, and she didn't have her key with her. Other than dinging at her and telling her on the dash that there was no fob detected, it let her drive around the parking lot. So my question is, "Is there a limit to how far or how long you can drive without the key?"

I can see it being the ultimate anti-carjacking feature. Dude makes you get out of the car, so you do, with the key in your pocket of course, and after he drives off the car shuts down. LOL Of course, I'm sure the legal department at GM would have a fit over making a car turn off while being driven. So I assume it will keep running and let you drive until you shut it off, or run out of gas.

Yeah, the car will continue to alert you that the key isn't present and will continue to run until you shut it off.
