Saab won't turn off

My 2004 9-5 wont turn all the way off – the enginge stops but electricals stay on? I can take the key out but electricals stay on-- anybody know why? Is it bad ignition? bad keys?

The problem may could be due to a bad ignition switch which is seprate fron the mechanical lock the key fits in.
