Q: Why did the Sherpa 50 turn off automatically?
A: The Sherpa 50 has a built-in feature that turns the unit off after a period of inactivity. This saves power. To override this mode and keep it in "always on" mode, simply hold down the power button for about 10 seconds. A small "ON" icon will appear in the upper left side of the LCD battery monitor if you are in "always on" mode. In this case, it will only turn off if it runs out of power or you turn it off.
