auto ISO in M mode? not option?

is it not possible to select AUTO ISO in "M" mode?

i press "Fn" then enter ISO and gives options 100 to 1600 and it shows "AUTO" lit in green but does not select.

Auto ISO is not available in "M" mode on the K10D. See page 157 of the english user manual.

That is how it should be: if AUTO anything would be allowed in MANUAL mode, that would mean that there would be no manual mode!

Think of the "M" mode this way: camera does not select anything for you, nor changes or adjusts anything you have selected. All settings are MANUAL and fully controlled by a photographer.
