I am not 100% certain yet, but I think this may be a symptom of the LP-E17 battery starting to die. I had exactly the problem descibed. I tried everything, changing firmware, changing lenses, reseting the camera (YUCK!) formatting and changing the SD card, nothing helped. I swaped to my second battery, and everythig was MUCH worse! I got a new battery today, charged it, and so far (about 1/2 hr) I have not had any sign of the camera switching on by itself! Now it could also be that there has not been a battery in the camera for 24 hrs too, and something got rest, but as of now, my RP is functioning as expected again. Hope this helps.

Well, the new battery solution didn't last. The camera still turns itself back on with the new battery, so this is not the problem.
Did you ever go into the Wireless menus and make sure that they were disabled?
When your camera turns itself ON, in what position is the power switch? A camera is not OFF, until you switch it OFF.

WiFi and Bluetooth are definitely both disabled, and the camera on/off switch is off. The camera will switch off as normal, including the sensor cleaning. Then it sometimes takes several minutes, but the camera then turns on with the switch still in the off position. After that the behavious is erratic. The only way to switch it off is to remove the battery.
