the site is in offline mode so i cannot view

I guess it would be something like
#menu li.level1:hover,
#menu li.level1.remain .active { background: url(../images/menu_level1_item.png) 0 10px no-repeat; }

changing to:
#menu li.level1:hover, #menu li.level1:active,
#menu li.level1.remain .active { background: url(../images/menu_level1_item.png) 0 10px no-repeat; }

#menu li.active a.level1 span.bg,
#menu li.active span.level1 span.bg { color: #694610; font-weight: normal; }

#menu li.level1:hover,
#menu li.level1.remain .active { background: url(../images/menu_level1_item.png) 0 10px no-repeat; }

#menu li:hover a.level1,
#menu li:hover span.level1 { background: url(../images/menu_level1_item.png) 100% -40px no-repeat; }

#menu li:hover a.level1 span.bg,
#menu li:hover span.level1 span.bg,
#menu li.remain .level1 span.bg { color:#ffffff; background: url(../images/menu_level1_item.png) 0 -90px repeat-x;}



To This code
