The Camera does automaticall shut off to save the batery, you can extend the "On"  time in the menu settings,another thing that can cause the hang up is that the memory card is full, don't keep a ton of images on the card even the large capacity ones, it slows start up time when they are near capacity and you risk loss if the card fails.  If the card is not fully inserted the camera won't shoot, if the camera is not in focus (believe it), switching from M mode after setting the shutter speed then dialing back to S mode.

Finepix S5700


This is from Fuji when I emailed them with the same problem.

Is their a yellow question mark, red cross or similar next to finepix ptp camera in device manager ?
Do you have an all in one scanner/printer or a webcam connected to windows xp pc ?
As it is possible the above may conflict with the camera.

We will temporarily disable your scanner.
Please try the following,
Connect your scanner, switch the scanner on, right click on Computer, left click on Properties, left click on Hardware and left click on Device Manager.
Please left click on the plus sign next to Imaging Devices, your scanner will be listed in this section.
Right click on the scanner, left click on Disable, click on Yes, a red cross will appear next to the scanner and please do not restart pc.
Please switch the scanner off or disconnect, connect the camera and switch on.
In the same Imaging devices section, right click on Finepix ptp camera, left click on uninstall, click on OK, do not restart pc and please switch the camera off.
Please double left click on the finepix viewer program icon on your desktop, please click on the drop down menu, SETTINGS, left click on OPERATION SETTINGS WHEN CAMERA IS CONNECTED.
Please untick AUTOSTART FINEPIX VIEWER WHEN THE CAMERA IS CONNECTED, click on OK and then restart computer.
After your pc has rebooted and you are back to desktop, please switch the camera on.
The Fuji camera will be re-installed, a box should appear in the middle of your screen, click on scanner & camera wizard.
If the box does not appear then please double left click on my computer, right click on the Fuji camera model, left click on Get Pictures and follow the on screen prompts to download the images.

Didn't work for me and I gave in and bought a card reader, but it's worth a shot.
