Can anyone explain me relation of leakage current or power with respect to Switching activity(S.A).

I'm assuming that with increase of S.A, the power dissipation of circuit increases in-turn increases the temperature. With increase of temperature leakage current increase by junction leakages.( since junction leakages are caused by thermally generated carriers). so the proportionality looks like

S.A (increases) = power dissipation(Increases) = Temperature (increases) = junction leakage (increases).

Please Correct me if i'm wrong.
