I don't think that the battery is charged enough. How are you charging the batteries? With the printer dock? It takes forever to charge the batteries via the printer dock, and minutes with the plug in charger. I found that the printer dock was not a reliable charger and that when I invested in a portable charger it was a lot faster and easier and more reliable.

The auto shut off should be around 30 seconds to allow the built in memory to store everything and rest.If it keeps repeatedly turning off and then on again in a short space of time it will use alot more power from the batteries just Like a car engine uses more petrol stopping at traffic lights. The other factor, I am repeatedly typing on this site is Digital cameras need to run on rechargeable batteries, If you are already using rechargeables,have a look at tha mAh value which should be written on the side. Retailers recomend a value of at least 1800,personally i would go for 2100.
I had the exact same problem, it would shut off after trying to turn it on. The door to the memory card has very small tabs on it that push in some kind of sensor inside the camera when you shut the lid. It starts up when I push in the sensor.
We had similiar problems with ours until we started making sure the camera was kept warm when it was shut off. For some reason, it and the batteries don't like the cold...we were able to extend the battery life if we kept it covered when we weren't using it.
