On an older worn engine, it is common for the light to come on at Idle your good as long as it goes away with higher rpms.

Here's a few reasons this could be happening

1 low oil
2 engine running hot thinning out the oil
3 Oil viscosity... what wt. oil are you using
4 your oil pressure switch could be failing
