I don't use video very often, but I tried it a couple of times recently while shooting hockey. It seems to work really well for short periods of time, but if I leave it in video mode in the off position for several minutes (the video off, not the camera), the screen goes dark. When I then turn it back on and try to film, the image looks way overexposed. It looked the same way on the computer when I downloaded.
What am I doing wrong?

Mike, thanks for the response. I think I found that the problem was caused by failing to adjust the exposure because I had left it in M mode. I thought the camera automatically adjusted exposure when in video mode (regardless of setting). I now realize that if it is left in M, I need to adjust exposure manually. The video was simply overexposed. Next time I will move it to the auto mode before shooting video or adjust the aperature and shutter if I want to shoot the video manually.
When the camera is asleep, I awaken it by hitting the video button. Is that correct? Moving it around did not improve exposure but I'm sure that's because it was overexposed.
