S5 Strange behavior while turned off...

I've bought an S5 Pro recently. It shoots well, everything seems to work fine, but it behaves strangely when turned off.

After I turn it off with a CF card inside, it begins flashing it CF activity LED. One short flash in 2 seconds... It does so for some time (I am not sure how much exactly, but more then 20 mins and less then 3 hours). Then this strange behavior stops.

While this led flashing does on, camera drains it's battery. Yesterday I've gave it a fully charged one and turned it off and today it has 3 of 5 marks of charge.

Anyone knows what is it all about?

Camera firmware - 1.09 and 1.12 (same happens with both), batteries are original NP-150 from Fuji, not new but nod dead, like 20% usage.
