K-5 won't autofocus with remote

Like the title of the thread says, my K-5 doesn't seem to autofocus with the remote. I'll start off by saying that I have the menu option for autofocusing with the remote turned on, and that it worked on my Kx before I upgraded. Any thoughts on what to do about this?

Thanks

Is AF-S set to "Focus-priority"? It is in the custom menu, C3-15.

Oh that did it. Didn't know it had to be set that way, but it really makes sense. Thanks!!

Might help to know what kind of remote you're using? OEM wireless, OEM wired, third party wireless or wired, some kind of trigger…?
