50D battery drain also when turned off

Issue #1879 invalid
Former user created an issue

I noticed that my 50D's batteries (different models and age) discharged very quickly also when the camera was turned off. This happened with different lenses mounted, all with stabilization and autofocus turned off. I took note of all combination of batteries and lenses and it happened indipentently from these factors. Sometimes the battery drain happened in one night from 100% to 10% of charge with all turned off. So I tried to uninstall ML from CF card and now battery life is normal (3 days of shooting). List of gear tested: 1 x Energizer 1500mAH, 1 x Phottix 1400mAH, 1 x unbranded 1500mAH batteries EOS 50D 1.0.9 firmware version, ML v2.3 Lenses: Tamron 17-50 f2.8, Canon 50 f1.8 II, Sigma 30 f1.4 HSM, Canon 85 f1.8, Tamron 70-300 VC USD.
