You leave your filter on "Filter" when vacuuming. After all you want whatever your vacuum sucks up to be filtered out! Be sure to rset it to "rinse" for a few minutes after you are done.

If the skimmer is sucking water, then it will also vacuum. If you don't have a dedicated vacuum port, stick it in the skimmer. If you can isolate all the "suckage" to the port with the vacuum, that would be best.
