Closed Loop Mode

Ok, I just got my scangauge installed and have a question about the Open/Closed Loop mode. While I know what they signify, I don't know why my Jeep goes into Closed mode so quickly. Example, on a 45 degree morning, startup, wait about 30 seconds while I get my seatbelt on, adjust the wipers and such, and pull out of the parking lot, and it goes into closed loop as I pull out. The Temp needle hasn't pulled off of the 110 degree mark (sorry, didn't get the water temp off of the Scangauge this morning).

On the upside - my scangauge says that I got an average 21.7 MPG for my last 90 mile trip to my relatives house in moderate highway traffic, heavy rain and no aeromods as of yet.
