Does anyones aircon seem to always be on? If I have it switched off and the fan running, it seems to always be ice cold?

It takes a while (several minutes) for the airflow to get back to ambient temperature after you have switched the A/C off.

I noticed that today I was driving home from work with the AC off but the fans set on 5 and as I was pulling into the bottlo it was cold as if the AC was running I even hit the AC Botton on and off just to check (it was turned off) but was still ice cold.

Ensure all lights to do with HAVC are off. Press or turn the fan knob to turn off. Turn fan back on to desired speed. Aircon should now be off.

Its always on regardless of the little light when you have the vent set to windscreen.

Mine also turns the aircon on and sets itself to recirculate by itself each time I start the car.

In the VF SII, aircon is automatic on/off by default, especially if the driver side dial is set to Auto. It will start and stop to achieve and maintain the set temperature.

I do have it set to windscreen/feet, the AC button light doesn't turn on when I do that so maybe that's where I'm going wrong?

Yes because it is in demist mode. Recirculate mode will do the same especially if you enter a tunnel like eastlink or Citylink.

My aircon always seems to be on most of the time with out the AC light being on too. I never worried about it though, I figure its climate control, just turn the temp up higher if its too cold

I can manually turn off a/c - as long as I am not in recirc mode. In recirc mode a/c is on, and the air is cold.
