Go back to the store you got it from and talk to them while it is still under warranty.
Camera is sitting on table next to me as I'm reading. I hear "ding", and look over to see LCD screen lit up and showing last pic I took...from two days ago. Happened more than once. I spoke with Canon tech yesterday and camera is on its way back for service. I bought it in early June and have only used it a few times inside the house to "practice." I'm a novice.
I'm sorry to hear your camera is powering itself on. If you have a second battery we would recommend loading that in the camera to check if the same thing happens. If the issue continues with a different battery, or you don't have a second battery to test with, we would recommend sending the camera in for service. If you send it in make sure to include a copy of the proof of purchase in the box. The technician will need that to verify the warranty.

UPDATE: I just received "a" camera back from Canon. It was sitting outside my garage door. I never got any emails saying it had shipped or had arrived. Good thing I was home.
Letter inside: "Since repairs are not performed on the camera model you sent for repair, we have shipped a new or factory-refurbished product to you in exchange for your original unit."
I just bought the camera last month at Best Buy for more than $700. Now, I have what might be a factory-refurbished model in its place. Canon did include another battery, battery-pack and wrist-strap.
