Problem with A590IS manual focus

Hello to all, I'm new here!

When I set manual focus distance with manual focus (5cm to Infinity) autofocus still works. So, if I set manual distance at 5cm and then press the shutter button, the autofocus moves the focus to center of the screen (as normal).
How to shoot with manual focus without autofocus working? It's useless like this. ???
