I have long been underwhelmed by my D80 JPEG processing and wondered how to go about using RAW, but creating JPEG when I ownload - (for ease of use, printing and storage)

Now that 4GB+ cards are relatively cheap, it seems more of a realistic option to use RAW all the time, if there are net benefits to be gained in image quality.

I know how to get the camera to shoot in RAW - that's the easy part.

What I want is a RAW processor I can set how I like (nice and sharp like Canon's seem to produce "out of the can"), and then just leave it to batch process time and time again whenver I download.

I have little time to spend post processing - I will do it with special pictures and don't mind setting things up at length once. But generally I want to have a one size fits all approach.

I presume all RAW processors are NOT the same!

The whole point of shooting in RAW is the degree of editing control it allows. Unless all the photo's in a particular batch were shot under the same lighting and setting then batch processing is pointless at best and might even create more problems than it solves.

Adobe lightroom works great for batch processing Raw photos

You could even download Adobe's DNG converter that will batch convert RAW files into DNG which most programs can read, even Paint.NET which I use.
