when you turn the flash off, it lowers the shutter sped a lot, in your case too much to get a sharp picture. you should either turn the flash on, use a tripod or hold it steadier or use S mode so you can lower the shutter speed.
hope that helps...

yes thats the point : in auto mode if it thinks it doesnt have enough light it lowers the shutter speed enough to get a well exposed pic, but lowering it may make it less sharp if your hands are not so steady
