From what I remember when I owned a K10D, there is no such feature...came out with the K20D (I could be wrong here). Do you have that many hot pixels or perhaps a good sensor cleaning would be a good idea?

And I'm not sure about others experiences but it sure seems like my K10D's sensor is a real dust magnet.

I've had my K10d for less than a year but have only cleaned the sensor once. That was a couple of months ago when I noticed smudgy aliens in the sky so I used the built-in vibrator. It worked a treat.

(Note to self : not taking enough photographs - must change lenses more often!)

These days I shot some night photos with long exposures. I noticed a lot of hot pixels on the blue or is it charged dust ...

Take a series of dark shots. If the hotspots are always in exactly the same place then they're hot pixels. I must confess that I've had them - on an older camera, since departed- but just spotted them out in PS.
