Power Steering Problem

Greetings to all Members!

This is my first post, I have bought a 2004 325i auto in the last couple of days. Black on black with 105000 kms.
Nice car, has a couple of light scratches but overall fairly well maintained. Bought it at auction so had no chance to test it beforehand. Drove it home OK, but yesterday I noticed that the power steering was not working with the car idling and my foot on the brake, but it would kick in once I drove off and the revs rose. This morning from a cold start the power steering worked fine, but after a while once the car got hot I noticed the power steering doing the same thing and not assisting while car is idling.

Anyone else had this problem or have an idea of what it could be. Fluid level seems to be fine.
