I can't find the Auto Shut Off, OFF SWITCH?

I have looked through the instruction manual & this forum, but I can't find any answers.
While I am at it, Can you change the focus distance display from meters to feet?

Menu
Customize
custom functions

custom function 11 lets you set the object distance in feet rather than meters
custom function 16 turns power saving on or off

you're welcome (actually if you hadn't asked I'd probably not have spotted the function 16 that turns the power saving off hehe!)

This camera has so many setting that in a year I'll still be finding new ones. ;-D

With my HVX 200 all I did was to raise the color to +3 and it is were I want it.

Thanks again, it would have taken me who knows how long.

It definitely has buttons and switches all over. Just have to be careful not to trigger them while shooting.

Oops! I accidently hit the "teleportation switch" now the A1 vanished! Oh well, it's back to my Sony Hi8!!
