USB headset question

I bought myself a USB headset at the weekend, to improve the quality of Skype and possible podcast recordings.

The thing is, with an old style headset as soon as you unplugged the headset, your main speakers would kick right in. And vice versa. Which is handy.

With the USB, that doesn’t happen. Which is not handy.

Any geeks out there know a work-around for this?
