What do I need to turn off?

Every once in a while when the dial on my K-5 is on the "P" mode, the mode on the display will show and the actually shot taken will be on a different mode, like Av Hyper. I don't remember seeing this on my K-7, any ideas on what I may be doing by accident?

P mode = Hyper mode.
Just means you adjusted the aperture whilst in P mode.

Thanks, I just don't know why I've been more prone to accidentally changing this, guess I'll have to get in the habit of checking before I start a new series of shots.

Hit the green button prior to shooting if you're not sure.
I've moved the thread also since this is more a beginner's question.
