Turns off humidifier?

So this might seem a little random but here goes...lol

I have a two year old son who gets nosebleeds, sneezes, coughing, etc. As someone who has allergies, I got him a humidifier for his room to help him breathe better, which worked VERY well.

That is, before he started turning it off at night after I tucked him in for bed. He doesn't unplug it, just turns the nob so it's off. It barely makes any noise so I'm not sure why he's messing with it but meh, besides the point.

So here's my question. Has anyone had this issue? If so, how did you resolve it. He needs the humidifier in there obviously since he's up to two nosebleeds a week (his doc says he's healthy and we have a family history of indoor and outdoor allergies), and he doesn't pick his nose. Saline spray and vapor baths aren't doing anything so I need to put the humidifier back in the room soon. Only issue is how to get it to stay on...lol

Related note: He's over 2yrs old and is in a toddler bed. He spazzes out in a pack n play (throws a tantrum that continues for multiple hours) so I can't just throw him in there or a non-existant crib until he's got them under control.

Sorry for the essay, the question was a bit out there so I figured a little backstory would help explain what's going on. TIA!

Is there anyway that you could put it on a shelf out of his reach? On top of a dresser or something?
