I've got an s5000, that has begun to shutdown by itself.

You are aware that there is an automatic shut down feature to help conserve power, aren't you? Also, consider getting some high-capacity rechargeable batteries.

The auto power-off feature can also be disabled. Is it worth asking what kind of batteries you're using? The camera will shut itself off if the batteries are low; if left in the camera for a while, they will regenerate slightly and allow the camera to operate momentarily, then shut down again.

Look in the instruction manual and you will find an index at the front. In the index youwill find a heading called "Settings". Under this heading you should find a sub-heading called "Auto Power Off" and alongside that, a page number. Turn to that page number and I'm fairly confident you will find thedirection you are seeking.

Alternatively, andsince you areapparently familiar withthe 2min and 5min settings command, you could always go there without referring to the manual and choose the "Off"option instead of the 2 or 5 mins options.

Sorry this reply is a bit late. Open the menu and scroll down to 'Set", push 'OK' and scroll to 'Auto power Off', then just choose 'Off". (This is the procedure for the S5200 - the S5000 should be similar)
