Is there a way to tell which Canon AF's (slide on switch) go into sleep mode and which ones do not.  I'm looking for a cheap cam w/ date but they seem to be hard to come by.  I have run across a few on ebay buy am afraid I will end up w/ the ones that go into sleep mode

Hi TR,
Just e-mail the seller and ask 'em to turn the cam ON - let it sit for an hour ON, then, after an hour, press AND HOLD the shutter ONCE (for about 3 or 4 seconds at least).  If it takes a pic - you're in business!
