Please check if yu did set the camera in AF mode continuous. In that mode, the camera is focusing on whatever is aimed at. Even when the shutter button is not pressed, allowing you to shoot without missing opportunities.
The mode where you see the camera focus when the button is pressed half way, is called single. This setting will conserve battery power.
Look in the manual under Switching between Focus Settings. I can't tell you war page that is for your camera, in mine it is page 100.
On the last pages in the book are all settings for each shooting mode.
Like every other camera. First charge the battery. Then place the battery and a memory card. Put the rail with the green camera on or next to it, on the green camera loge. (that is the automatic mode) Then switch on the camera. Point the camera to a subject you want to image. Then press the shutter release button half and wait tick the camera has focused. Most of the time you hear a beep or see a light becoming green. Then press the button compete and the picture is made. Only when you are familiar with this, you can go on and work with menus to get other (not always better) results.
Everything is in the manual, that came with the camera.

this is most likley one of two things. If you are using a rechargeble battery - it is not keeping a charge. When the camera detects low power it will usually shut itself down drawing in the lens for protection and shutting down. If the battery is gone passed it's time it will not take a proper charge. You will need to replace the battery. Alternatively you may have a dodgy mechanism - some dirt or even internal component may be broken - in your zoom lens. If the lens cannot extend correctly the camera will automatically retract and power down so as not to cause further damage - for example you camera gets accidentally switched on whilst in the case, and the lens cannot come out.... bring it in for repair.
I know not a solution but hope it helps. Regards Thomas
To save battery power, the camera automatically goes into sleep mode and the monitor turns off if there is no operation after 3 minutes when the camera is turned on (when the lens cover is open and the monitor is on). No picture is taken even if the shutter button is fully pressed in this mode. Operate the zoom button or other buttons to restore the camera from sleep mode before taking a picture. If the camera is left on for 15 minutes, it automatically turns off (the lens cover closes and the monitor turns off). Press POWER to turn the camera on.
The accessory shoe above the flash has a switch under the plate which detects when an external flash is attached. If that switch has become obstructed by dirt the camera will not fire the built in flash. Check it is free from dirt or corrosion, apart from that, the only other cause will be the flash tube itself is faulty and needs to be replaced. The user manuals for Canon cameras are usually fairly thorough but if you require further assistance your local photo store should be able to direct you to some helpful workshops to help get the most out of your product.
This is a big time failure.
Take the card out and make sure it has clean contacts.
Format the card in the camera.
If to no avail go to HP technical Support
This may be a known issue even though warranty ids over- but where further help may be available
