Does anyones GoPro take a while to switch off? It doesn't do it all the time, but sometimes it just starts doing this where after I click the off button or say "GoPro Off" it'll beep and then I have to wait like 3 seconds while to screen is still on for it to go off, and it would do this for like half a day. And other times it's fine and almost immediate.

@grandvista6687 - It can take a couple of seconds to cycle down, especially if you've recorded or captured a file right before you shut it down. Let us know if it becomes an issue for you though.

But it just doesn't seem normal, I would turn my GoPro on in the morning after not using it for 16+ hours and turn it off, sometimes I have to wait even 5 seconds before it switches off

Thanks a lot for the video! Very good explanation and presentation :)
I noticed you started the timer as soon as you put your finger on the button. What I meant is that sometimes mine takes 4-5 seconds from the time it beeps a couple times to tell me its turning off. So it beeps 5 times or however many it is, and then the display stays on for 4 seconds and then switches off. That is the root of my concern here, and I haven't noticed that on yours.
Although I still haven't worked out when it does this, or any specific pattern, it has done it on multiple occasions now when I useed it first time since the previous day. So I left it undused for 12+ hours, then in the morning the first time (or two) I turn it on then off, it would have that long delay when turning off. But after a couple times it does go back to the normal shutdown times.
