I think it's static electricity that makes my hearing aid turn off on me... I get to brushing my hair with my hearing aid on, and boom what the I'm deaf why?! Of course, as soon as it goes off, I flip the switch off then turn it back on, I don't wait to see if it'll come back on its own. This is why I always have my hair pulled back into a ponytail, every single day. Otherwise, my hearing aid is just going to tick me off daily. It does the same if I'm laying on the couch and move my head around. I think it's just static electricity. I can avoid it for the most part, if I'm careful enough and make sure I don't make enough static around my head so that my hearing aid does weird things.
