I have an A73 but the operations should be similar/same for your camera. In the toolbox menu, page 2 there is a power save start time setting. If you set this, the camera will enter standby mode when the set time is reached. It can be restarted by touching the shutter button or menu button only.

I also have airplane mode switched on to further reduce power consumption (I don't need NFC, Wi-Fi or Blue tooth connectivity)

Right, but he's saying that he's putting it in a bag where the EVF eye sensor will be triggered. That will keep the camera from going to sleep.

A7R2 with SEL2470Z and a number of adapted lenses (Canon FD, Minolta AF, Canon EF, Leica, Nikon...); A7R converted to IR.
