you know, it hadnt occurred to me before but all of a sudden i am reminded of my 5DC turning itself off intermittently.

turns out the on/off switch was a bit faulty. the camera would power down with just a slight bump of the switch. it wouldnt even move to the off position at all...just a bit of a nudge and the camera would go down.

it didnt help that the switch was on the back where my face would bump it while shooting and i realize the 6D has its switch on the top left of the camera but it might be worth wiggle the switches gently to see if that powers the camera down

The camera is still with Canon at this moment, but I doubt that is the issue since in your case, I will assume the camera won't display flashing empty battery, right?
