View Full Version : How do I disable "Idle" in Messages?

Apr 30, 2013, 11:25 AM
Part of my work consists of me doing other non-computer things while Messages is up, and if it sits too long, it changes my status to Idle.

The only instructions I've been able to find have related to older versions of iChat. Does anyone know how to do this in Messages?

Go to preferences, click on accounts, click on the account name you want to change, then click on privacy then check the box for "Block others from seeing my status as idle" then close preferences and you're good to go!
