Blank info screen

For some reason my information screen on the top of the camera suddenly goes blank and only returns with a touch on the button. This is not sleep mode after prolonged idleness but often soon after I have just taken a picture. Enlightenment, please

Sounds normal. How long does it take from the capture of a photo for it to go off ?

This is per design. Don't know which camera you have; the following is true for the K10D... Both the LCD info screen on the top of the camera and the info bar in the view finder are tied to the "Meter Operating Time". See page 143 of your operating manual for info on how to control this.
