How likely is the RX100 to turn on by accident & lens cover opening inside a pocket?

I know the answer will depend on how tight the pants is, but let us assume, a guy with normal jeans, and a girl with fitting pants but with a pocket that could still accommodate the RX100, tight though.

Since the uncased RX100 is supposed to be a pocketable camera, how what are the chances that the camera will turn on button get pressed accidentally inside a pants pocket or a jacket pocket?

Because if it turns on accidentally, the lens will protrude inside the pocket which might damage the camera?

Is it a common thing to happen?

ALSO

How common is it for the lens cover of an OFF and Uncased Rx100 to scrape or pushed on the inside of the pants causing it to open exposing the lens to stuff inside the pants?

Thanks.

This is all assuming that the camera will be placed inside a pocket without a case.

Sony RX100
