C-5060 auto power off.
The Olympus C-5060 automatically powers down after 3min.
Is it possible to cancel this auto power off, or to extend this time to 30min, like in Canon or Nikon cameras?

I believe you'll find that setting in the camera settings menus.
You can choose the auto-off setting.

C-5060 Auto Power Down (Sleep)
I emailed Olympus regarding user settings for power down (sleep) timer. I did not see any mention in any reviews. Olympus replied that sleep timer is 3 minutes and not user adjustable. On another on-line forum I noted a posting which suggested that the only way to defeat the power down, is to attach the AC adapter (or other external power source). I've expanded my question to Olympus tech support and am awaiting an answer. By the way, a couple reviews of the C-8080 have noted that the sleep timer is user settable up to 10 minutes, I believe. Can anyone confirm or correct my understanding of this feature. Thank you!
