G7X mark 3 randomly turns on

Hello! I recently purchased a g7z mk3 and sometimes (usually at night) I will hear the startup chime and the screen will turn on - but the lens won't extend. Any ideas? Is this a lemon?

Thanks

I think it is Bluetooth.  Disable it when not in use.

 

[EDIT] Be sure to actually switch the camera OFF.  Letting it go to sleep allows something external to wake it up.
