Hal, with the flash popped up is the lightning bolt there if you're not in command mode? Also, is there a lightning bolt in the proper place when you bring up the info menu? According to the manual, and the way my D800 works, these indicators should be there as long as the flash is up. The control panel should tell you what flash mode you're in (red-eye, slow sync, rear sync, etc.) and the info display should tell you the same thing plus whether you're in TTL, Command, etc. mode.
