My solution, returned it and pickup the cheaper H760. It's not as good for audio but hey look it that, you turn it on and it stays on. It's AMAZING
Seriously though, I agree with that completely. A v2.0 release of this G930 (or some software to allow the non-sleep function) would have made it the perfect headset for my needs. Heck, one function would have keep this on my desk and then passed a recommendation to 15 of the folks I work with who want better audio with their calls. I may be one guy but I share my positive (and negative) experiences on this sort of hardware. One design tweak and this would have been a recommended buy.

There is some pretty useless information in this thread on fixes. Whoever says it is a good design to not have an option to ONLY use the microphone of this product does not understand consumers.
There is no reason that the option cannot exist to disable the auto shutoff. Adults are pretty capable of turning off something when they are done with it, and with a 10 hour battery life this is definitely something that should be considered. I use my headphones some of the time, but my 5.1 sound system at other times. Why should I have to have a different mic to use with my speakers when the 930 can work fine if they just add this option? Products should be able to do what other products before it have done.
So I am chiming in here saying that I am extremely disappointed that I spent $130 on a headset only to find that I cannot use it as I have used every other headset before it. Please add the option to disable auto-shutoff.

I got this headset a few days ago and am really annoyed with this feature also. The worst part is that this headset turns off even when plugged in!! Then to turn it back on I need to either hold the power button for 5 seconds or so, and sometimes that doesnt work so I need to unplug and replug the headset in. What a pain in the **bleep** every single time I sit at the computer to have to do this. Worst part about it is that I cant return this headset as I didnt keep my receipt.
Im pretty disappointed with this and doubt Ill be buying another Logitech product anytime soon. Poor design/implementation. How was this not addressed in testing?

Thanks for your workaround, but I return this after deciding my hack of running iTunes at 0 volumne was just stupid. I suspect you have made something much more graceful but how does it work? I have a friend who stil lwants to keep this headset and it's not as annoying of a problem for him to have it go to sleep but it has still been an issue.

I tried that application you made ( thank you btw) and it still auto shut off after 10 mins or so. I did notice on the app, that you are able to put a checkmark in the box but it is greyed out.
I am on a windows 7 ultimate 64bit system.
