I've got a question for all the 6490 owners out there, do any of you have the problem of this camera going into sleep mode after about 20-30 seconds of inactivity. when I first got it, it would go about 10 minutes.

Bob, I have noticed this also. I'm not sure when it started.

Thanks for the replies, guys. I don't feel so bad now. I recently got right at 475 pics on one fully charged battery, so I guess it isn't all bad.

I noticed I posted this twice, it has been a long day, LOL

It's supposed to Bob, after about 30 seconds or so. Push any button and it will wake up.

See the two holes on the back of the EVF, stick a bit of tape over them and it will stay on for a minute.

Thanks for the tip ColdSnail, I think that will come in very handy.

Thanks, Cold Snail. Good tip. When I first got my 6490 it stayed on for most of 10 minutes.
