The danged light won't go out.

I know I'm missing something but I cannot seem to get the EOS R5 Autofocus Assist Light Beam to stop firing. I do a lot of manual-focus photography of macro subjects and, although it does NOT have an effect on the actual exposures, I would like to get the AFALB to shut off. It depletes the battery somewhat I'm sure and also delays the exposure. I have set the menu item AF-2 "AF-assist beam firing" to "OFF" but it stills pulses for every shot. Does anyone have any ideas or have you found a way to truly disable it?

The lens is set to Manual Focus.
