feethanddooth, I know the problem of which you speak. I had 105s on my road bike for quite some time and never did get to the point where they hung like they should have. I constantly had to look down to engage the cleat properly, and yes, that feeling of your foot shooting off the pedal sucks horribly.
I had the 105s for quite some time, and they never did loosen up enough to hang properly. They're just not as well-balanced as the higher level pedals I think. I ended up switching to Crank Bros Quattros. They're easier to get into position and aren't nearly as slippery when you pedal without your cleat clipped in. Besides, I was used to the Crank Bros system on my mountain bike.
If it's still an option, I'd suggest exchanging your pedals and springing for Ultegra level.
