It's not entirely clear to me what exactly your problem is.
If you adjust the speaker levels manually then these changes should be remembered after you turn off the receiver and then turn it back on. If they're being reset every time you turn off receiver then something is wrong and your receiver may be defective. Try resetting the receiver back to factory defaults and see if after doing that it then remembers your speaker settings.
If the problem is that you're trying to use multiple speaker configurations and the receiver can only remember one of the them then there is a way the receiver can remember two different speaker configurations and switch between them.
First select speaker pattern 1 as the current speaker pattern ([On Screen] -> Setup -> Speaker -> Manual Setup -> Setting Pattern -> Pattern1). Then use YPAO and/or configure your speakers as you would normaly use them.
Next if you want to base your second speaker configuration on the first then copy pattern 1 to pattern 2 ([On Screen] -> Setup -> Speaker -> Manual Setup -> Setting Data Copy -> Pattern1 ► 2).
Then select pattern 2 as current ([On Screen] -> Setup -> Speaker -> Manual Setup -> Setting Pattern -> Pattern2) and configure your speakers in the alternate configuration you want to use.
You can then select either of these two patterns to be your current speaker configuration ([On Screen] -> Speaker -> Manual Setup -> Setting Pattern -> Pattern1/Pattern2). You can assign either of these two configurations to a Scene to make easier, but it's not as simple as holding down one of the scene buttons on the remote.
You first need to configure the scene you want to use so that the speaker configuration is remembered as being part of the scene ([On Screen] -> Scene -> -> [Up] -> Load -> Detail -> Speaker Setup). You can also use the Detail screen to select other things that are remembered by the scene, and you can also prevent things from being remembered. For example if you want to the scene button to only remember the speaker setup and not also change the input or anything else, then uncheck everything else on the list and only have Speaker Setup checked.
Now configure your receiver the way you want it for that scene. Remember to select the speaker pattern you want that scene to record. Then either hold down the scene button on the remote for three seconds or use the Scene menu to save it ([On Screen] -> Scene -> -> [Up] -> Save).
You should now have scene button on the remote that will switch to one of the two speaker patterns. You should repeat this for a second scene so you also have a way to quickly switch to the other speaker pattern.
