I need to disable video and picture modes. I only use timrwarp

I shoot kayaking videos, usually in bright sun. I have twice accidently, while trying to turn the camera on, switched modes to video. How can I disable or turn off Video and Picture or stop the power buttom from changing modes?

Re: I need to disable video and picture modes. I only use timrwarp

Mode On and off can not be desabled but defaulted to  vid, photo timelapse of your choice, the quickcapture can be desabled. you can not swap quick capture and mode.   this may be  a good suggestion to    head to a feedback of gopro, and offer it

Yeah, I've already set that. I'm just hard of hearing and I've nad it where I didn't realize it came on and pushed the button again. Ruined about 4 hours of video.
