Look at your opponents moves. Talk to your opponent, that way, you'll distract him in place of yourself and you'll pay attention to hi moves.

Of course, talk to him in a friendly manner, rudeness has no place in 40k.

Do you play with friends or people you don't know?

On a more serious note, the better you and your opponent get at 40k, the less looking up rules, puzzling out what to do, and so forth will happen. Thus, the games will move quicker, and it'll be more interesting. So your problem will partially solve itself with times.

Watch your opponent, and, if he'll let you, look through his codex/army lists. Try to figure out what he's doing and stop it.
"Brothers in battle and blood, In oath and honor, In life and death, In faith and in truth. Brothers in the sight of the Emperor. So be it ever, as He-on-Terra wills. Amen." - Prayer of Initiation, Knights Revenant attr. Captain Lucius Faust, 597.M41

"'Death before dishonor.' This is our creed, our way of life and death. Bolstered by the faith of the immortal God-Emperor, we may go into battle without fear for self. We know that whatever sacrifice is made in the name of He-on-Terra is not made in vain. Our honor rests in our service to Him, and we could ask no greater reward than to rest at His side, having given our utmost in His name." -Captain Anborn Tohr, after the Siege of Hydrax III

i used to have the same problem as you, the way i combatted it was to turn off distracting things like TVs etc.

also i tend to think about the battle in fluff terms, if you imagine what each move would be like in real life, each combat etc. it makes the game more interesting (however i am very weird like this).

pay attention to what your enemy is doing, so you can react to his moves, and change your plan accordingly, plan your next move during his turn. this usually makes the time pass.

but in general its as Tyndmyr says, the better you get the faster the game goes and the less time you have to have your mind wander.
