how to move pivot point Maya PERMANENTLY

How do you permanently change the pivot point in Maya? That is, I hit insert to move the point to the edge of the poly, then move it along that pivot axis, BUT I want the pivot point to STAY THERE, NOT AUTOMATICALLY move BACK to the center when I click on it again later. It keeps doing this and I keep having to remove the pivot point. This is very annoying. HOW else can I move the Pivot point and keep it at that spot? In 3d Max you can do this, but Maya is really driving me nuts with stuff like this.

Hi

I think you are moving it in component mode
in component mode, what you are moving is the TOOL PIVOT, not the object pivot
get to object mode and move it there

Dude you just helped me tremendously! Thanks! I was not in object mode. Thanks so much! One last thing, how do you render a jpeg in Maya with the grey textures showing? I keep getting wireframes. Sorry, as you can see I don't know Maya that well, I learned in 3ds Max.
