When will K5 use its AF Assist Light?

I was playing with mine last night and testing the AF shooting under dim light environment. I find that the light doesn't turn on when it is trying to focus. Not sure how it works

p.s. forgive me that I haven't had enough time to read the whole manual yet if it does say something related to this

Make sure you are in AF-S mode, not AF-C. It won't turn on during AF-C.

Can't think why they turn it off in AFC. Why not at least give us the choice in another menu option? I for one would turn it on in AFC.
