You set the sleep mode to 1 minute. Do you mean that you don't turn off the camera manually? That is going to drain battery. It takes a lot of processing power to keep refreshing the image. The CCD has to be powered, etc.

Yes, if I am walking around with the camera, I don't turn it off after every picture. I have the sleep mode set to 1 minute and it goes to sleep. When I'm not using the camera, I turn it off manually.
