Default GPS turns on by itself, nothing helped

Whenever I turn on WiFi or 3g Internet (allows data connection of a sim card), GPS turns on by itself. I have tried a number of ways to prevent it from doing so:
1) unchecked "Allow the applications determine my location..." in Locations services
2) unchecked "GPS" there
3) unchecked "GPS-A" there
4) disabled some applications which may have turned it on such as Lenovo weather or just disallowed them to ask for my location
5) disable this for google services

None of these helped. It keeps turning on by itself. Specifically, the checkboxes "Allow the applications determine my location..." and "GPS" in Locations services get checked by themselves as well once I turn on the Internet.


Lenovo s650, Android 4.2.2.
