This is a very irritating problem with the D-90 in Video mode.
In fact, Nikon has done a really poor job with it's video function in its very, very good still cameras.
I have an Olympus that cost less than 1/4 what I paid for my Nikon D-90 and it's video quality and zoom capability is 20 times better than Nikon while it's function as a still camera is almost equal to Nikon.
I can do far more with the Nikon but do I really need to?
The only thing you can do in video mode is stop shooting. Then you have to refocus before you can shoot the next video clip. This takes tine as has caused me to miss good shots because I could not simply pause and resume shooting at the same lens setting I had been using.
Since I shoot nearly as much video as I do still stuff, I should have bought a different camera...one which does have good video capability. If I had invested the same amount of money in an Olympus that I have in my Nikon, I'd wager that I'd have better video capability and high quality still capability as well. And Olympus has a great electronic zoom and autofocus that beats Nikon hands down.
In the end, if you want decent video capability in a still camera, Nikon is not the way to go unless they've improved enormously since coming out with the D-90.
Very few cameras do. Videos are meant to be shot and then edited and scenes spliced together, often out of the sequence in which they were shot.
To "pause" a video, simply stop shooting. To "unpause," resume shooting. Then use a video editing program on a computer to splice them together. You might also want to put a title at the beginning, add credits at the end, add a musical soundtrack, etc.
Sleep is a power-saving state that allows a computer to quickly resume full-power operation (typically within several seconds) when you want to start working again. Putting your computer into the sleep state is like pausing a DVD player-the computer immediately stops what it's doing and is ready to start again when you want to resume working.
When a computer is in Sleep mode, the power light is blinking and you get a blank screen like it's turned OFF.
On most computers, you can resume working by pressing your computer's power button. However, not all computers are the same. You might be able to wake your computer by pressing any key on the keyboard, clicking a mouse button, or opening the lid on a laptop. Check the documentation that came with your computer or go to the manufacturer's website.
That's just the quirky autofocus of the d80. Try tilting the camera diagonally to focus and tilting back up to shoot.
Unfortunately, autofocus issues like those are the difference between a d80 and a d200/d300 :/
defective image processor. use in continuous mode, but take only 1 shot. may not be expensive to fix. not user serviceable, and not something you can't live with if you can take images in cont mode. consider having it evaluated by the factory and getting a quote for repair if it bothers you not being able to shoot in single shot mode. nikon does seem to have more trouble than most in their non-premium products. good luck mark
