Loss of power steering at idle?

Just like the title says, becoming more common in my Jeep to not have power steering at idle, but with a little gas it's normal. Never experienced this in a PS vehicle, what do you guys think could be the issue?

And before anyone says it.... it's full of fluid!!

you could have a small leak... there are lines that run from the pump, to the fan, and back to the pump. these tend to get bad and leak. thus causing this issue. i only seem to have issues in the winter with this... it blows but a new pump is not in my budget currently because i want toys. PS is great, but my history with older cars without it permits me to drive without worry
