thanks all i will rep each of you, seems like a bad system to me to be honest.

The only way it would stay, is if the item was, say £100, and you started the bidding at 99p, with a reserve of £50.

In this case, the Buy it Now of £100 would stay until the reserve was met.

As you can't put a reserve on anything under £50, you can only use it for high value items.
