So today my mother called me downstairs to help her with something on our new iMac. I set an away message on my Mac. When I go downstairs, I notice on her buddy list that there is the green circle next to my screen name and the message: "Away." I log on to another screen name in Windows to find that it also says I'm not away, but it displays the message: "Away." It appears that my friend is having the same problem too with his new MacBook Pro. Is anybody else having this problem? UPDATE: This is NOT fixed in iChat 5.0 in Snow Leopard.
