built-in image processing makes for awful pictures

Summary: I can't seem to disable the image processing or force it to stay in a particular mode. As a result, typical ambient lighting situations cause the camera to 'process' the image and leave it either under or over exposed. I've attempted to mess with all the setting to no avail -- if some strange combination works, then it defeats the purpose of a *simple* point-and-shoot camera anyway. This thing sucks. Don't buy it.
Summary: I used the camera for a couple of days while on a trip in February and then again for one night in March. I just went to use it for the third time a week ago and it wouldn't turn on. I plugged it in to make sure that the battery was fully charged and still it didn't work. I then proceeded to plug it into my laptop to charge it to see if maybe the charger was bad. After leaving it overnight to charge from my laptop it still didn't turn on.
Summary: I purchased this camera to have a nice little point and shoot camera handy to take pictures of my child. This camera takes the worst photos! Everything is blurry no matter what setting I have it on. It is also difficult to find just a standard photo setting. The thing that bugs me the most about the camera is the slow shutter speed. Every time I try to snap a photo, it takes 3 seconds before it takes.
