Why does my M8 forget my WATE settings?

I have a CV 15mm in M mount that I used a sharpie to code as a WATE.

When the camera starts up I select 16mm.

Then within moments the lens select box comes up again. I select 16mm.

Instantly the lens select box comes up again. I select 16mm.

10 minutes later the lens select box comes up again.

(repeat for entire day of shooting)

Any thoughts as to why this might be happening? I tried turning off sleep mode thinking that could be it but that had no effect.

Damn forgetful camera is wasting my electricity!
