Should this be happening?

When my EM1 MK2 goes to sleep after a period if inactivity, I cannot wake it up by half pressing the shutter or any other method. I have to turn the camera off and back on again...is this normal?

Thanks in advance

Mark

Yes, completely normal. There is a sleep period after which it will awake by a shutter button press, but then a longer auto power off period, after which you need to cycle power to get things going again.

Yes, this is normal. You can change the Auto Power-Off delay time in the Uitilty Menu (Cog J2).

Thanks Paul, just checked the auto power off...thought I'd set it to 30 mins but it was set at 5 mins! That's a relief!

I've had this happen to me a couple times too - good to know it was just another thing hiding in the system menu!
