With the mode set to P, if you rotate the rear wheel you can "shift" the program-set values to increase the shutter speed/open the aperture (or slow the shutter speed/close the aperture). I usually have my display set to show the exposure data on the bottom of the frame, and you can see the aperture and shutter speed combination change. The camera's metered EV remains the same. Freebie: if you've toggled AEL, this display will show an * on the right hand side of the info bar on the bottom of the LCD.

Thanks for detailing the Mode P method, but the camera would still randomly assign aperture/shutter/iso combinations instead of allowing me to fix Aperture while maintaining the lowest "floor" for shutter speed, so it can spit out the correct ISO above that minimum.

Are Sony engineers really this incompetent? Or is this a CPU/chipset limitation issue?

That may be if you're using Auto ISO (I don't - not a moral issue just a limitation on my experiences with this issue as it affects other users).
