LCD turns off after one minute...?

After I updated the camera, it turns the lcd off after one minute.... Before the update it just dimmed the brightness down, but now it turns the screen completely off....Why? And is there a workaround?

I bought the camera just because the screen! Cant use the camera without it!

I use the camera when I`m out diving, ofcourse in the waterproof housing. The workaround by turning the screen off and on is thereby not an option for me..

I dont care about batterylife and overheating is not a problem because I always use it in cold water.

I like the camera but I seriously need the screen!!

What to do??

Finally!! I got it ;-)

Setup/touch display/sleep....was set too 1 minute.. Now I set it to Never, and it only dimms down after one minute! 

Thank you for your help!

I´m going diving ;-)

If you talking about the GP5, you can change the screen time in pull-down Preferences menu (Preferences/Touch Display/Screensaver)...By default I think it's set to switch off after 1 min to save battery.....there's an option there for NEVER.
