Re: EM1-Mk2 shortened battery life issue

I can only make a couple of observations as I have never experienced what you describe.

Firstly as I recall there are settings in the menu for how long to go into sleep/snooze if no buttons pressed & to auto shutdown after a specified period ~ having said that in the 'in the bag still turned on scenario' and your surmise would either of those settings "act".

The other observation ~ I never use the regular strap!
I have a Black Rapid Sling with a C-12 Arca Swiss clamp attached to it and have as needed the appropriate AS plate on the body and the lens tripod mount foot.  With that method the only thing that 'persists' is the LCD on...........but as I have set a sleep after 2 mins all it takes is shutter press (any button?) to wake it up ready for action.

HTH even though not a direct answer to the issue you raise
