The LCD screen may be overtaxing your batteries, resulting in shutdown. Are you using alkaline batteries, or worse yet "super heavy duty" batteries? If so, some brands of regular batteries just don't have the power for more than a few pics in a digital camera. Some may even have problems just powering startup of the camera. Performance varies by brand and shelf life of the batteries (how long were they on the store shelf before you bought them? Their expiration date may be listed on the package.).
Digital cameras for the most part should only be used with rechargeable NiMH batteries. Many retailers sells these for around $7 for a package of four (about $15-19 for the batteries with charger). Keep in mind they'll save you big bucks in the long run over alkalines, AND they'll last for at least 100 pictures per charge (and probably many many more). You'll be very pleased with their performance, and may slap yourself for not buying them sooner. When at the store, look on the package for a power rating of at least 2500 mah.
