"User Mode" of PZ-1p

What is, how do you use the "User Mode" of the Pentax PZ-1p?
I've got the manual for the PZ-1 from the Butkus site, but the middle spot of the Off/On button on that camera is for the "Green Mode". On the PZ-1p, it's labeled "User Mode".

That's sort of a simple auto mode. I never use it though.

The PZ-1 and the PZ-1p are very different cameras with their own manual.

Here is the PZ-1p manual.

Thanks for the manual!

The User Mode of the PZ-1p:
Easy picture taking mode only for Programmed AE mode. When the lens aperture ring is set to other than A position, only the Aperture-priority AE mode is available.
For other available functions, see page 21. However, the desired exposure modes and other functions can be set when [User Mode] function is set at this position.

The Green Mode of the PZ-1:
Green position (for easy picture taking in either Programmed AE or Aperture-Priority AE mode).
