How to get sunset shots SOOC (G1 X II)?

I am having some problems getting sunset shots accurately SOOC. It seems that whatever WB setting I use, it corrects the temperature to match "standard daylight white." So instead of a rich yellow/orange hue, I get boring-looking white/blueish shots. I know this can be adjusted in PP but its not really the same.

Is there a way to turn off white balance completely (similar to the "neutral" setting in the DSLRs)? Or a sunset/sunrise setting would be nice...

BTW the daylight balance setting doesn't work. Occasionally, the camera will unexpectedly not correct the WB and I will get an accurately balanced shot but this is rare (approx. 1 in 30 shots? And no idea why...)
