Question about Canon PowerShot A640 Digital Camera
I had the same problem. I figured out that it was being caused by loose batteries. When I would shake the camera, I could hear the batteries jiggle around and the camera would turn off. I fixed the issue by taking a stiff piece of wire; bending a little 90 degree hook on the end, and then using the hook to gently lift the little spring in the battery compartment. Now the batteries are firmly secured, and I don't have the problem any more.

It sounds like your camera has an auto power off malfunction and you should call Canon tech support to have it serviced.
