    Hey folks,

    So every time I finish watching a movie or TV show on computer and begin using my mouse/keyboard, I get an iChat alert asking if it wants to change my status back to "Available". How come iChat is automatically setting my status as Away and how do I make it so it doesn't do this anymore.

    I'm pretty sure you can turn this feature off in iChat preferences. It's just the auto away message - since you're not using the kb/mouse it's thinking you're not at the computer.

    EDIT -

    Just looked it up - there's an option for "Set my status as available" in the prefs. Hope that solves it for you.
