How to keep one track sustained on a note when you switch to another?

Hey all. Hopefully this will be an easy task, but when Im selected on a instrument channel, lets say a pad, and sustain the notes to continue playing the sound while switching to arm a different instrument, the sound just drops out of the "pad" channel. The weird thing is all plug ins and rewire instruments continue to sustain, after switching to another channel. The only things that doesnt sustain are ableton instruments. Any ideas?

    My suggestion would be to reinstall Live, preferably with a new version, sounds like it's broken.
