I know you mean this in fun, but for those who are trying to figure things out for real, the mode dial is "exposure modes" where as the front switch is "focus modes"

But if you really want to push the limit on auto functions, just what the H*** does the grean button do in manual, suprise it sets the exposure to the Automatic settings, maybe it should have just turned on the light meter, oops sorry that is already on
That's because the green button on the K10D switches you to Hyper-Manual. It is a very useful feature to help zero in on the correct exposure and allow you to switch the appropriate shutter speed and aperture settings quickly.

To have a better understanding you can reference the very informative and excellent info provided by Pentax here:
