If you don't have a battery on the GoPro the clock/date will be reset, and you'll have to manually configure it when you put the battery back in. So it is definitely not a solution for me. I personally don't mind battery drain that is predictible (2-5% per day)..... what kills me is completely battery drain (from 100% to 0%) in a short period of time (overnight, or a few hours). I've seen complete battery drain in just 2 hours.

I am having the same issue. Fully charged, put it all back in the protective case and get it ready, went to turn it on next morning and nada. Battery was dead. It was only in the bag turned off mind you, for overnight so I'm not sure how long it actually took, but honestly, a battery should last a lot longer than that. And when off it should be completely off. I don't see the need for any of the auto turn on/off by voice or otherwise features and I'd probably only use those when really needed, so that's all off too. The only thing I did not turn off were all LED's I as well have the beep sound to lowest, but that shouldn't be the issue nor the LED's since none were on when the camera was off. If it's wifi, wtf is it doing connecting to wifi when it's off? Certainly you could update it when it's turned on the next time yes?
Also my date and time were fine. So I'm not sure what that other guy was talking about losing that data when he took the battery out, but I did not have that problem. I'm just a bit concerned about this draining so fast. It charges really fast, but still. And then in the protective case it comes in, why oh why would you not make it so you can open the side charging panel? Why do I need to remove it to have access?
