Why does my camera turn off by itself?
The camera turns off by itself once I stop using it, why does this keep occurring?

If the camera turns on again, you're dealing with the auto power off feature. The camera will turn itself off to conserve battery power if you don't operate it for a set time period. Simply pressing the shutter button half way will turn the camera back on.
You can change the time-out period, or disable auto power off altogether, through the camera's menu, as follows:
The procedure is illustrated on page 42 of the (English language) manual.
If you don't have the manual, you can get it in pdf format here.
