When I use the SB800 in remote mode using the popup flash on my D300 as the main, the SB800 goes into standby after a short time. I have to push the on/off button to wake it up. I have tried turning the standby off when the flash is set to master but this does not fix the problem. When used in the remote mode, the standby icon is not visible.

The flash does fire properly when used in remote mode.

Any ideas...thanks Tom
