Go Pro keeps turning itself on and is driving me crazy

It looks like a LOT of people are having this same issue and I can't find any solution.  Even with the WiFi off, the camera keeps turning on and off untill the battery is dead.  I just did an update and it didn't help.  Why does this happen and is the company working on a solution?  It seems to be a very common problem.

Turning the wireless off on the camera should stop that, but if not, please make sure that your camera is running the latest firmware.

 

Thanks,

Jeff

I think it could be from EM interference triggering your camera.

Update is done and the wifi is off.  It just all turns on.

Any way to test that theory or stop it from happening?
