SOURCE: Pilot on logs won't stay lit
Hold pilot button longer. if this doesn't work your Thermopile has gone bad and will not generate enough Millivolts to keep gas valve pilot open. A new thermopile will generate 750 millivolts. It cost less than $20 dollars but is difficult to replace. You should call a certified technician. They will charge you about $100.00

From what you described it sounds like the Oxygen Depletion Sensor (ODS) may be partially clogged with dust, lint and/or pet hair. The ODS is a safety device, that shuts the system down if it detects that there's not enough oxygen for safe combustion. It can be cleaned with a can of compressed air with a straw nozzle (like you clean your computer with).
Remove the logs from the burner and carefully set them of to the side, out of the way. I should mention here, the logs have to go back in the exact same position and configuration that they were in, before you took them out. So, keep that in mind. Better yet, find your Owners Manual or take a picture of the setup, before you remove them.
Once you have the logs off the burner(s), use a vacuum that has a hose and brush attachment and vacuum the burner(s), the grate and any cobwebs you see in the firebox. After completing the vacuuming, look at the Pilot Assembly. Tank the can of compressed air with the straw nozzle attached and blow out the pilot tip with a quick blast of air. Now, log down the pilot from the tip. About 2/3rds of the way down, you will see a hole in the side of the pilot. That's the ODS sensor. Place the tip of the straw nozzle just barley into that hole and give it a quick blast of air. You may see debris come out the other side. Now, reinstall the logs on the burner, the exact way they were before you removed them. Light the pilot as you normally would and once it lights, hold the Control Knob in for 1 minute. Ease of the Control Knob and turn it to the ON position, Everything should not work as it was designed.
Take a moment to pat yourself on the back. You just completed what's known as "Annual Maintenance." Which should be done at least annually. Usually in the Fall, before you light the gas logs for the heating season.
Hope this helped to solve your problem.
