Slow wake-up after sleep

I just got a V1.  I really like it so far, but one thing that seems frustrating is the slow wakeup after sleep, especially going straight to the EVF.  I've only gone out shooting with it for one short day, but here's what kept happening:

  1. See a shot.
  2. Lift camera to eye.
  3. Notice that the screen is black.
  4. Wait half a second (time it takes for the EVF to turn on when camera is awake).
  5. Notice that the screen is still black, figure the camera must be asleep.
  6. Push the shutter half-way.
  7. Wait several seconds until the EVF turns on.
  8. Shot is gone.
