Just bot a Sony DSC-H50--auto power off is every 3 minutes!!

by wolfcreek / June 17, 2008 2:44 PM PDT

I just bot a new Sony DSC-H50 camera and like it in every way EXCEPT it has an automatic 3 minute power off function. Is there any way I can increase that time limit? I am taking sports pictures and expect that to be a big pain! I do hope someone can help me but I'm afraid it can't be done. Thanks.

I looked at the manual and did not find any setting in the camera to adjust the auto-shutoff. I found it in the troubleshooting section, but Sony says to just turn the power back on.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
