    juts wondering why iChat logs out when you don't use it for awhile. I wish I could set it so that it stays on all the time becuase I don't when my friends are gonna be online~

    I checked all my preferences and I don't see an option for iChat logging ou after a specific time. I assume this is caused by having sleep come on. Turn off "put computer to sleep" and "turn off hard drives whenever possible" (because I don't like it ;P) in the Energy Saver palette of the System Preferences. You can still let the monitor go to sleep.

    FWIW, for me, iChat automatically logs me in when my computer wakes up from sleep.

    also, if you're on dial-up you should make sure you have not set in your network preferences that it should automatically disconnect after a certain amount of time idle.
