Once I set my secondary to a much higher level than I had before (as mentioned, to the number suggested during the optimize process), my false positives have gone away. My success using the double command process works extremely well now.  It now works exactly as expected.

Great!
My documentation needs to be improved because some get it and some don't
If you have time, please write a short explanation of how to configure the mic feature or how it works.
Thanks!

To optimize the Voicecomputer microphone (manually)

Note: there are two confidence levels, primary and secondary.  Either number will activate the program
   to start looking for the command ("activate microphone" or "activate voice computer").
   If you set either number too low, you will encounter several "false positives" (microphone
   turning off or on, or the screen to request a voice computer restart" at undesired times).

1.  Start the "VC Microphone" application, or make sure it is running.
2.  Issue the voice command "activate microphone" a few times

Optional steps
a.  Open the file C:/programData/voiceteach/microphone/VC_microphonelog.txt
b.  Don't worry that there are too many "heard: 'activate microphone" entries
c.  Note the confidence levels in general.  Note particularly where you see "not a secondary match"
d.  This will give you a good idea of where to set the secondary match confidence level


4.  With the Dragon Mic on, issue the voice command "optimize microphone"
5.  This will open up a second log file that has confidence levels when the activate command was 
     successfully heard.
6.  I recommend setting the primary confidence level quite high, say around 98%
7.  Set the secondary confidence level at about the numbers that you observed in either the 
     successful heard log (step 5), or the higher numbers that you notice in the 
     VC_microphoneLog file in the optional steps above. Start a little high, you would repeat 
     this process from step 4 through step 7 by slightly lowering the secondary number until 
     you consistently get the results you're looking for.
