Samsung F8000 Turn On By Itself

I have Samsung Model # UN60F8000. As I was walking past my tv last night, all of a sudden the red led light turned off and the bottom middle white light over the Samsung emblem on the tv powered on, which usually happens when you turn on the tv. The screen never actually turned on and then after a couple of seconds it turned off and the off red led light went back on(which means the tv is turned off). This has only happened once so not too concerned about it, but considering I just bought the tv, I'm somewhat worrisome. I figured post here to ask if this is a issue...I'll keep a close eye on it. Thanks.

I'd guess a brownout or something wrong with the power supply board.

Not sure, but I'm trying to keep an eye out for anything.

After firmware 1060 on my 8550, my TV has been exhibiting this problem... It will turn itself on or off... My wife thinks it is haunted...

If it's not a BIG screen, it's not a theater...
