580EX II as off camera flash - 90 second timeout?

How do I make the 580EX II not turn off after 90 seconds? I've been looking but I can't seem to find an answer that works.

When working outside or on location, I typically use two flash units with a pocketwizard setup, umbrella, and stand instead of a full studio rig. I've had no problems with my Metz, but the 580 times out consistently, making for a frustrating shoot.

Sorry if this question is redundant, I looked but couldn't find the answer.

Thanks!
