Dust removal at start-up

I have the box checked in my custom menu settings. How can I verify that it is working? On my k10 the camera would actually shake at start-up. My K5 just sort of turns on without the shake. Yes....this pertains to my other post below

The K-5 uses an ultrasonic method. The other K's use(d) a physical shake. In my experience the K-5's dust removal is not perceptable. Whether it works or not is debatable, although I have mine set for startup and have had few dust issues.

The fact that there's no perceivable noise is somewhat off-putting, but be assured, it's working as it uses an ultrasonic method!
