Sleep and Shutoff Modes

To conserve power, most cameras have what are called a sleep mode and a shutoff mode.

■ The sleep mode automatically sets the camera in a power-saving state if you don't touch any of the controls or buttons on your camera for 1 minute, 2 minutes, or 5 minutes. (You may be able to selectthe number of minutes in your camera's setup menu. Two minutes is a good numberto start with.) Sleep mode turns almost everything off—the image sensor, LCD viewfinder, flash—but simply pressing the shutter button will wake the camera up in a second or two, ready to shoot.
