K10D manual focus question

So I finally got my first all manual prime today (M 28mm f3.5). I haven't had a chance to take it for a real ride yet, but I noticed that the shutter doesn't engage unless the focus is "set" and the focus assist sign turns on. I press the shutter release and nothing happens

Is there an option that controls that? I scanned through the menu and couldn't find anything relevant.

Thanks.

That would only happen if it's set to AF mode.

Set your focus mode to MF. The light/beep will still work, but you can take a shot at any time.
