Projector turning on/off by itself - help!
Is there some functionality in the BenQ HT2050a projector that would allow it to turn on/off by itself?
Earlier today I found the projector running with no one in the basement. Chewed out my kids a bit for leaving it on, even though they were adamant about not having used it. Then just now we got home from a soccer match, and heard the projector make the beep it normally makes when turning off. Sure enough I felt the case and it was warm! Definitely I did not leave it running before we left for the soccer match.
Obviously I am concerned given the cost of bulb replacement. Can't have this projector turning on at night or when I am out, burning valuable bulb hours. Has anyone encountered this issue with this or other projectors? Maybe there is some setting I should change to prevent this behavior? Perhaps some other remote in the household is sending an ON signal to the projector.
Edit: Want to add that I checked and both the HDMI CEC and the Direct Power settings are turned off in the projector menu.
