1DX mark II Battery Life in Auto Shutdown

I have had my 1DX II (love it!) for about 3 months and have found that it kills batteries if it goes into auto-shut down mode.  I do have the GPS disabled since I know that would contribute.  There are no accessories connected to the camera. All my older 1D series cameras maintained their batteries for months when in auto shutdown mode.  The 1DX II kills my batteries within a week easily.  I have had to make sure I deliberately turn it off in order not to have a dead battery in a few days.  I welcome and ideas from the forum on whether anyone else has this problem, if there is a setting I am not thinking of or if there is possibly a defect in my camera.
