How Do I Make Playhead Return To Original Position in PrPro?

So, I've recently switched from Sony Vegas to PrPro for video editing, and there's 3 features I miss from SVPro.

One of which is when I press stop (Space) the Playhead returns to where I started it, NOT from the beginning of the clip or timeline,

but from the spot I started the playback (i.e. I start the playback at 1 minute and 37 seconds, I let it play for about 50 second and I press space, then it returns to 1 minute 37 seconds) How do I enable this in PrPro? I'm using PrPro CC 2015.

The other 2 features I miss would be awesome to have, so IF you know of a way to do this I'd love it.

Why doesn't the audio waveform show when I move the clip with a mouse? It does in SVPro and it helps syncing or matching audio/music up with a clip perfectly with ease and fast, whereas this process is a lot slower and tedious in PrPro. Is there any way I can make the waveform show even when moving audio clips with the mouse?

And WHY can't I implement clips recorded with Nvidia Shadowplay without it going out of sync? That's the main reason I switched to using SVPro (Back in the day I started with PrPro but the sync problem and the task to fix it took way too long, SVPro made the entire process 50 times faster) Is there a fix for this too? I know shadowplay records 60 FPS variable framerate, but can't I get a feature or put on a setting where it takes this into account and DOESN'T de-sync it?

Of course the MAIN subject is the playhead, I really miss this feature, but if any of you know an easy and quick fix for the other 2 I'd love it! (I've not updated PrPro because I don't like setting things up anew, I'm stubborn yes I know - If all of these features are in newer versions please let me know and I'll get those installed ASAP)

Thanks!

The playhead remains where it stops (as it should).  There is no other behavior available.You can get the audio close, and then nudge it using ALT+< or ALT+> shortcuts for fine adjustments.  The waveform will remain visible during that move.Premiere Pro is designed for professionals.  Gaming videos don't qualify.  You'll have an easier time using a consumer level editor that can handle consumer video formats.

It is a shame that there is no such simple action in such powerful software.

Even Adobe Audition has the ability to return the playhead to the original position after stop.

Even so, I always try to work around the limitations of software using Autohotkey software. But Premiere's list of internal controls is so messed up that I could not even do that.

Very sad.

It is - I get that it's professional software and that's why I like it, I create other stuff than "Just" gaming videos.
It's a simple feature that I know is just something I have to get used to NOT having, but I still really liked it!

You could set markers, if that would help.
