Looking through the menus of your camera, it seems you can't change the setting for sleep. The camera must protect you for draining your battery, when you are walking outside. In page 113 of the manual, it only shows the setting can be added to the Myset menu, not if or how you could switch it of or extend / shorten the time before the camera shuts off.

How do i change sleep mode

Sleep Timer Mode

The Sleep Timer mode is an energy-saving feature that enables you to set a time for the monitor to
power on and off at the same time every day. This also extends the life of the backlight bulbs in the
monitor. The Sleep Timer has five settings:
? Set Current Time
? Set Sleep Time
? Set On Time
? Timer: On/Off
? Sleep Now

To set the timer:
1. Press the Menu button on the monitor front panel to display the OSD Menu.
2. Scroll down and highlight Management.
3. Press the OK button to select Management.
4. Scroll down and highlight and select Sleep Timer > Set Current Time.
NOTE: You must set the current local time before you reset the time for Sleep Time or On Time. Note that the time is displayed in a 24-hour clock format. For example, 1:15 p.m. is displayed as 13 hours 15 minutes. A power failure or loss of power to the monitor will cause the timer to reset to 00:00. If this occurs, you will need to reset the sleep timer mode.

5. Press the OK button once to enter the adjustment mode for hours.
6. Press the - (Minus) or + (Plus) button to adjust the hour.
7. Press the OK button again to enter the time for minutes.
8. Press the - (Minus) or + (Plus) button to adjust the minutes.
9. Press the OK button to lock in the time chosen.
10. After setting the current time, the highlight automatically skips to Set Sleep Time. Repeat steps 6 through 9 to set Sleep Time.
11. If you do not want to set Sleep Time, press the OK button twice, then select Save and Return to exit the menu.
12. After setting Sleep Time, the highlight automatically skips to Set On Time. Repeat steps 6 through 9 to set On Time.
13. Set the Timer mode to On to activate the Sleep Timer settings.
14. When you are finished, select Save and Return to exit the menu.

The fifth selection, Sleep Now, turns the monitor backlights off immediately and stays in sleep mode
until the next On Time activates or a monitor button is pressed.

I have trouble sleeping. Why is sleep so important for us?

Sleep is one of the fundamental parts of a healthy lifestyle, just like eating and exercising. We need a basic amount of sleep to function but lack of sleep can affect many things from relationships to quality of life. So if you are having trouble sleeping, it's really worth speaking to someone about it.

I have a Grundig radio S350DL and I cannot switch off the sleep function and therefore the radio automatically switches off after 30 mins. or so . Can you advise? Les. Akers

The Power and Sleep Functions share the same button. If you press the Power/Sleep button repeatedly you see numbers displayed 90, 75 60, ... 01. These are the duration of the sleep functions. If you stop at 60 the radio will work for 60 minutes then turns itself off. This must be a battery saving feature so that a radio will not be on for ever. Suppose the radio has been on for a while (long or short) and you want to turn it off without waiting for the sleep timer. Just press the Power/Sleep button.

How does the Timer and Sleep functions work for the SUMO KFR-70GW Heat Pump


On the timer function, when you press the button, it will ask you the starting time and ending time of when the unit will start and turn off by itself. prior to use this function, the clock on the control has to be set.. On the sleep function, it will give you the option to turn off unit on 30 min. intervals. Just like on a TV.

Ipod in sleep mode

How to Enable Sleep Mode :
1. Access the main menu on your iPod
2. Go to the extras menu > clock
3. Select your current time ensuring that your timezone settings are correct
4. Select the Sleep Timer options
5. Select the time that you want your iPod to shut down

And if your iPod goes into Deep Sleep Mode then here is the answer to that :
Right "Deep Sleep" is a battery saving mode if the iPod is not touched in say a 18-24 hour period I think. It reboots (resets) coming out of this mode.

1) There are people reporting that they must always reset their iPod to turn it back on after shutting it off, they don't really mention deep sleep at all, search for "must always reset" or something along those lines

2) I'm not sure if this is documented anywhere specifically. It is a normal function of the iPod that we discovered somewhere along the line. Not sure where the first talk about it came from, you may find information on this searching "deep sleep" there was a hack to force the iPod immediately into deep sleep once upon a time.

3) Not exactly. If an iPod has gone into deep sleep, plugging it into the power will automatically start the reboot. In the case of buttons you should be able to touch a button and it will start to reboot, I have found with my 3G iPod it takes a very deliberate touch or two or three touches to the touch sensitive buttons to get it to wake up, but you shouldn't HAVE to do the reset command (i.e. menu/select button held down), if you do you may be looking at more of the original problemin #1

Standby light is flashing 10 tims Model KV-HR36

Try unpluging your T.V. for 5hours+, then turn it back on. Worked for It's called a "hard reset" by sony.

Do the following steps
  1. Check the Sony remote for a button labeled "Sleep." This allows you to cycle through the sleep settings and determine how long you want the TV to remain on.
  2. Step 2 Press the "Sleep" button. You'll see a number come up onscreen: usually 15 or 90. When you press it again the number changes, moving up and down in increments of 15. This is the number of minutes the TV will remain on before it goes to sleep. As you cycle through it, you should see a setting with the words "Sleep Off" appear onscreen. If you leave it there, the sleep setting should cancel, allowing you to turn the set off when you like. If you miss it, just keep pushing the "Sleep" button. It will continue to cycle through the options until "Sleep Off" appears once again.
  3. Step 3 Access the timer function to shut off the timer by pressing the "Menu" button, then cycling through the onscreen options until you reach the "Applications" setting. Press it, and then cycle through to the "Clock/Timers" option.
  4. Step 4 Highlight the "Timer 1" setting and press the "+" button. If it's showing a given time, you'll need to deactivate it. Use the up and down arrows and move through the possible options until you come to the "Off" setting. Leave it there; that should shut the timer off.
  5. Step 5 Repeat the process with the "Timer 2" setting, a little further down the "Clock/Timers" menu. Set it to the "Off" position just as you did with the "Timer 1" setting.
  6. Step 6 Press the "Menu" button when you are done to exit the menu and return to the screen. You should be able to view the Sony TV as normal with no danger of it turning off.

good luck

Curious - What is the moon shaped key all about

this button puts the computer into sleep mode.


Sleep mode can go by many different names, including Stand By (Microsoft Windows 95-Server 2003), Sleep (Mac OS 8)-(Mac OS X) / (Windows Vista,Windows Server 2008), and Suspend (Linux). When placed in this Sleep mode, aside from the RAM which is required to restore the machine's state, the computer attempts to cut power to all unneeded parts of the machine. Because of the large power savings, most laptops automatically enter this mode when the computer is running on batteries and the lid is closed.
Though Sleep and Hibernate are generally thought as two separate functions, modern Macintoshes, Windows Vista (termed Hybrid Sleep), and some specially configured Linux machines also feature a variation of Sleep mode that incorporates the strengths of Hibernate. The RAM is copied to the hard drive before sleep mode is initiated, preserving the RAM contents in the event of a power loss.
ACPI is the current standard for power management, superseding APM and providing the backbone for sleep and hibernation on modern computers. Sleep mode corresponds to ACPI mode S3. When a non-ACPI device is plugged in, Windows will sometimes disable stand-by functionality for the whole operating system. Without ACPI functionality, as seen on older hardware, sleep mode is usually restricted to turning off the monitor and spinning down the hard drive.
