Phonegap-plugin-push STICKY notifications

I’ve been using raix:push to setup my notifications and I find it very easy. I had to do some modifications of the code to enable action buttons, and all is well except for one thing -

I am trying to add media buttons for PLAY and STOP similar to spotify/pandora. This is fine but the buttons currently close the notification box every time they are selected. I have dug through all of the readme’s and docs to no avail. Anyone have any idea how I can force notifications to remain on the phone?
