This sometimes happened with my M130 if I recall correctly. The handheld
sometimes receives a false signal of some sort (perhaps one button had
faulty contacts because no hard screen protector had been used). Then, it
simply decided to 'wake up'.

If you set an auto-off period (like 1 minute), you will be able to prevent
the battery from ever draining, but sometimes there is a pattern of going
on and off repeatedly. The safest thing is to dock your Palm on the cradle
if it worries you. You can also get application to will lock your Palm.

Last but not least, it is also possible that this one-time mishap was a
software issue so be sure to reset your T5.
