As usual, CarolW has given great advice.

If you are "wasting" strips with the meter timing out before getting a blood droplet you can turn the meter on after you see the droplet form. On my meter that turns on automatically when I insert the strip, I just barely insert the strip and then when I see the droplet form I can push the strip in the rest of the way.
