How can you switch off the IS?

It's not the new lens since I've switched it to another and the hum continues. Switched off the I.S. and still noise.

Any ideas?

As far as I can see the IS will always have to be on, even if it isn't moving the sensor, to hold it steady. I'm not certain that's the case, I did try to ask about it, but I just got the usual bunch of ignoramii telling me that nothing Oly makes could ever go wrong and how wonderful IBIS is.
