Creating a menu where sub nav remains visible

I have used the Milonic menu to create the following nav bar:
It has been created using images only.

I would like for it to work a little differently though. I was wondering if the I can make the sub menus remain visible and in blue (i.e. using a different menu image) when a main menu item is clicked. When a main menu item has been clicked I would then like it to also remain blue, even when rolled over (it currently goes back to grey). Once a main menu item has been clicked it would be great if the sub navigation was always visible when on the current page. So you could roll over other menu items and see their sub nav options but when you roll off the main menu the current page's sub nav is still visible. I hope this all makes sense!

My milonic files can be found at:

Help would be greatly appreciated.

Using keepalive

Just in response to my previous post, I would like the keepalive property to become active after the main menu option has been clicked. Is this possible? I would also like the pageimage property to override the overimage property. Is this possible?

Not quite sure about this module...

Thanks for the tip but I am a bit unclear on what the purpose of the module is.

"The object of this module is to re-open the menu or menus up to point where the user was on a previous page."

Does this mean the menus will stay open once the user has selected a menu or sub menu item? Does it need to be included on every page in the head tag?

I do not have experience with that module.
I just clicked this link

and started the sample there, finding, that it keeps the menu open.
