    I did not change any setting since received the camera, how can I wake up the camera after the sleep mode kicked in? I tried shutter button and did not work, mainly have the EVF on.

    This is a firmware problem, what firmware are you on?

    Actually, I believe this is a SETTING issue NOT a firmware problem.

    Go into Gear D and look what the value of the "Auto Power Off" setting is. If it's a short time the camera is fully shutting off instead of just going to sleep, which means the only way to wake it back up is to turn the camera ff and back on again.

    For instance I have Sleep set to a few minutes, and Auto Power Off set for 4 hours...the idea is if I forgot I left the camera in on in sleep mode it will then fully shut off saving my battery!
