How do I keep the Maxxum 5400 flash awake?

I have two old but working flashes- a 5400xi and 5400HS- that I use as remotes with Pocket Wizards. They work fine as long as I am shooting rapidly. If there is any idle time, one or both may go the sleep and I have to press the ON button before I can start shooting again. Not a problem if they are close to the camera but when I am shooting a school function and they are on the other side of the auditorium, they are just not accesible.

Anyone know of a way to keep them awake?
