FWIW, I had to take the red shutter button off of mine - because it made it easier to press, in my bag it kept triggering the bug where the battery drains when the shutter is depressed and the camera is off :\

Really? Depressing the shutter when the camera is off uses the battery??? Wasn't aware of that. Will keep an eye on it. It's definitely easy to press with it on...

Yes it definitely drains the battery if the bug rubs up against the inside of your case or bag,even when it is turned off, I just take the battery out. No big deal. WC

Strange behaviour no? Can understand it if in sleep mode, of course, but why would pressing the shutter button in the 'off state' engage anything that draws power? The camera, unlike some others, doesn't even go into playback mode when you press the play button in the off state.
