K-x and default ISO in Av mode

I finally broke down and got an nice shiney new-to-me k-x. I've already run into a minor problem. I almost always shoot in Av mode but I very much like to determine the ISO I'm using. When I turn the camera on in Av mode, the ISO reverts to auto. Obviously this is the default. I change it to manual and select the ISO I want but when I turn the camera off and then back on it is set back on the auto ISO setting. Is there any way I can make manual ISO the default setting when I turn the camera on in Av mode. I've searched the manual and can find nothing. Yes, it's a work-around problem, but my K-20D stays where I set it when I turn it off, I'd like the K-x to do the same.

You're doing something wrong. My K-x remembers the last ISO setting when I turn it back on.

You can change what is remembered by the camera in the Memory menu : Menu-> Rec 4 -> Memory

Thanks! That did the trick. I guess I should read the manual again :sigh:
