APs are **not** generally configured to stop beaconing, they are often configured to not advertise their SSID in the beacons.
Not advertising the SSID is considered by many to be a form of security. However sniffers and other analyzers can still determine the SSID from probe-request and probe-response frames even with broadcast-SSID disabled.
When a Cisco client roams, it will load-balance itself to the "best" AP.
It a pretty complex algorithm, with heuristics to prevent "flapping", but client evaluates the following information from the AP before deciding which AP to use;
-- Signal strength
-- # client associations
-- AP transmitter load
-- # of repeater hops to the backbone
All of this information is contained in Cisco AP beacons even if broadcast SSID has been turned off.
