Camera wont go into sleep if remote control is enabled.

Camera wont go into sleep if remote control is enabled.

 

Is Sony aware of this?

also are they aware that some of the battery drains even if the camera is off (while remote control is enabled). 

 

* They probably want it to go to sleep ... BUT, have it wake up when you use the Remote Control. To save on Batteries.

Re: Camera wont go into sleep if remote control is enabled.

Thanks for posting this ross I am currently running a test to see if the camera is draining the battery and at what rate (While remote control is enabled and camera is off).

 

As soon as I get the results I will post them here. One thing is for sure with remote control enabled  the camera wont go to sleep which i think is a bug.

Re: Camera wont go into sleep if remote control is enabled.

just received my a7s, i notice the PWR SAFE START does not work at all! I tried to set it to 15sec, minutes, etc. It does not go into sleep mode. Anyone experience this problem?

Re: Camera wont go into sleep if remote control is enabled.

Hey all. Has anyone made any progress on this? I'm wondering if I could leave the camera on in this state and connect to it remotely? Like while I'm out of the house. Really strange that it won't go to sleep...
