How to keep mirror open in live view on Canon 5D Mark II

I can't keep the mirror open whenI am in standby.. Even with manual focus set it seems to last a minute.. maybe less.. Can I keep it indefiedtly open? I also have MagicLantern but can't find a suitable option.
Any help?
What is the maximum time I can get it to stay open.. and how?
