D800 Bulb problem

Guys,

I'm in Moab Utah, trying to do night photography and can't seem to get Bulb shutter speed to work. It seems that I need to hold the button in the whole time. Is there a secret or a setting that I'm missing? Aren't you supposed to press once for start and once again when you want to end? I'm trying to us it with MUP, but I have tried other modes as well. I read that it is not supposed to work with self-timer.

Thanks for any help,

Michael
