Is the gauge cluster the only thing that stays on or does the radio stay on as well?
If so it might be a faulty starter switch on the stearing column.

If you can't fix it with a hammer you've got an electrical problem!

Well if there were more things on the dashboard that stayed powered on the switch could be the culprit.
But as you stated it's only the dash there might be another cause for this problem.

GM digital dashboards are famous for having cold solder joints. I had several random segments in mine that were not displaying at all. In order to repair bad solder joints, you will need to remove the gauge cluster from the van, disassemble it down to the circuit board, and then touch all the shiny joints with a hot soldering iron and a roll of solder....annoying, and time consuming, but it will never mess up again after it's repaired! I found several where the wire tabs between the fluorescent display and the circuit board simply were not touching...the blob of solder had broken off.
