K7 and Shake correction/image stabilisation problem

Hi, I have got my lovely new K7 and am gradually trying to find out how all the buttons etc work. ONe thing that is puzzling me is that I can only seem to get the Shake reduction to activate when the mode dial is in User setting. when the mode dial is is any of the other settings the Shake reduction setting is greyed out in the menus. Is there something I am doing wrong? The lenses I am using are the WR Kit lense 18-55mm and the DA 55-300mm one so they are the right lenses.
Any suggestions?

same applies if the camera is on shutter delay, 2 or 10 sec delay cancels SR.

Yes, this was the case for me. When on shutter delay, the assumption is you're using a tripod, hence no shake reduction.
