I have an Olympus SP-800UZ photo camera. How do I lengthen the time before the camera shuts down?

My problem is that the camera goes black (shuts down) if I don’t touch anything for about 15 seconds. I can understand that this is to protect battery life, but I often need more time to set up a shot. My question is: How do I lengthen the time before the camera shuts down?

Thank you!

As I can see in the manual, it seems that you can not set a custom timer before the display goes off. The default timer is 10 seconds and it can be either turned on (enabled) or disabled so the display will stay open all the time. You can change this by going ещ the settings menu > Power Save > ON/OFF. ON enables the 10 seconds function and OFF keeps the display always open.
