I turn mine off when the battery starts getting low....unless I have a spare. Otherwise it's about 50/50. If wildlife are involved it stays on all the time.

I don't but then I usually hold it with one hand down by my leg so I've never encountered any issues with any settings being changed whilst not using it. I would take jatrax's advice and just shorten the Off timer.
That is how I hold my camera, seems to be rare, I usually see people with a camera around the neck. Anyway, I hold it in one hand with the cord wrapped around my wrist/arm.
