a99 won't go to sleep
7 months ago

My a99 fails randomly to go to sleep. AF eyestart is set to OFF, powersave to MAX. Funny thing is that the problem only happens when I carry it in my hand or it hangs in the strap from my shoulder. If I put it on a table, it shuts down after 5 secs, as it should, and I can't wake it up by pressing buttons (except shutter button of course) or waving my hand at the viewfinder. Of course, it drains the battery quickly when the EVF is on all the time (first, I didn't notice the problem). This is bugging me...
