Stop "Auto Power Off" on Flash

Hello ALL,
I have two flashes setting on stand and on remote off camera flash.
1) Pentax AF-360 FGZ
2) Pentax AF-500 FTZ

The problem here is that after a minute or so, the flashes are automatically power off, and I have to walk over to these flashes and manually trigger the power back on again. This is kinda annoying.

How do I turn off this auto-power feature?

Get an AF540FGZ or FGZ ll or AF360FGZ ll... Both of those do not have the capability to disable the auto turn off.
