E-M1 Mark II Lockup (not UHS II)

We shot a series of images with the E-M1 II and 40-150 f2.8 at the weekend, and when finished turned the camera off and put the camera away.

A hour later when the camera was taken back out it was locked up (power switch not responding) and very hot. Removing and replacing the battery cured the lockup and it appeared that almost all the remaining battery life had been consumed (about 75%) while packed.

The camera had a Sandisk 32GB 95MB/s in Slot 1 and a Sandisk 32GB/s 45MB/s in Slot 2, so this is not the known UHS-II issue. Both cards work fine in other cameras and were cleanly formatted in the Olympus before use. Both camera and lens are running the latest firmware (1.1 and 1.2 respectively)

Has anyone seen something similar? Any suggestions as to the cause/workaround?
