Question - D600 in Av mode & Auto ISO while using flash. Goes to max ISO...

I have a D600 I am playing with, and found one thing I am not sure about.

Av, Auto ISO (100-6400 range), using the built-in flash.

Taking pictures in a dark space, but still close (like 5-10'), the camera goes right up to ISO 6400.  Of course, with the flash this is not needed.

Short of manually changing the ISO, is there a way for the camera to intelligently select a lower ISO when using the flash?  I'd think 100-400 would be just fine.  I know if I was taking a picture 30' away, it may actually need to use ISO 6400 because of the limited flash power.

Thanks!
