My Gopro hero 5 black keeps turning itself on?

My Gopro hero5 black keeps turning itself on all by itself !

The wireless connection needs to be turned off to stop this happening? 

Is this normal  ? Or is the camera faulty ?

@sweetflame113 - It's normal. Your camera is likely just going into standby mode and not actually powering off. The camera is likely reactivating as it pings for a connection. If you hold the power button down a little longer and/or turn off the wifi when you're done using the camera, that should take care of this for you.
