Your camera automatically switches itself off when you do not use it for more than 2 minutes as a way to conserve batteries and to save power when you use the optional power adapter.
Important: The auto-power-off function does not operate in Computer mode.
To disable the auto-power-off function in all modes, hold down the action button while turning on the camera. The camera will continue to use battery power even if you do not use it for several minutes. When you turn off the camera and then turn it back on, auto-poweroff is again enabled.
It is especially good to disable auto-power-off when you are using a television to view images or when you are recording a video that you do not want the camera to turn off during those operations.
Important: Always use the optional power adapter when you disable the auto-power-off function.
