It is Ok to leave your batteries in the camera. Mind only that NiMH self discharge slowly and the camera draws some small amount of current even when powered off, so if you haven't used the camera for a while (say a month or longer) you may need to put them in the charger and top them off before use. You can useother cells in your charger. I use mostly Sanyo cells, branded as Kodak or Sony. The 2300 mAh oneswork very well.

About image transfer, it's fully OK to copy images exactly as you described. I usually erase image from the camera instead from Windows though.

About settings, you can find some discussions here and at the imafing-resource.com forum. In short most people use the W1 in P-mode as opposed to fully auto mode with ISO set to 100 and focus set to center. If you don't want to sharpen your images afterwards it is good to set the sharpness to + in the camera too.

hope this helps
