Question about 2005 Volvo XC70
With the ignition key in position II and the window in the fully up position press and hold the down side of the window button until the window reaches it's end stop and continue to hold the button down for at least 5 seconds. Next, repeat the above procedure only now going up but remember to hold the switch for at least 5 seconds after the window reaches it's stop. You do not need VIDA for this repair although VIDA can do the same thing only via the computers.

It's true what gazzer69 said; the auto-up feature can be restored with holding the switch closed 5 seconds, although I've only done it with pulling a fuse as part of the procedure (more info here: http://forums.swedespeed.com/showthread.php?140864-how-to-do-power-window-calibration).
I believe, though, the switch COULD BE bad, as Anthony James said. I think that because I've performed the 5 second hold the switch shut procedure with success twice now. Of course, the only reason I had to do it a second time was because it only fixed it for about a month. The fact that the problem reappeared indicates something else is wrong. Could be the switch. Could be something else.
I don't believe it's true what Richie the Volvo Tech said. The vehicle owner does NOT need to go to a Volvo dealer/repair shop. The problem CAN be fixed by anyone who can follow a few simple instructions and has 5 minutes to spare. If something else is wrong, though, (as described in paragraph 2) you'll need to do something else to keep the problem from coming back.

The problem you are experiencing isn't a bad switch.
The problem is due to the driver's door window not being "initialized" any more.
Has to be brought to a Volvo dealership or an authorized Volvo repair shop that has access to Volvo's computer based diagnosis and repair system, so they can re-initialize the windows.
And if they are nice enough...they won't charge you for it. I don't charge any customers with this type of concern. Its just too easy of a fix and nothing to really worry about.
