Bug Description

Binary package hint: empathy

Using Lucid. When I suspend my computer Empathy changes my MSN status to away, or atleast when I wake my computer up my status is set to away so I guess it happens when suspending. I can't find any way to control this. I think my status should be set to Available when I wake up my computer. I don't like auto-away and I don't like that Empathy does this. It doesn't make sense that my status should be Available before I suspend and then Away when I wake up my computer. I have to manually change my status to Available every time I wake my computer up from suspend.

I've got the trouble to, but in a different way. When I was away from the computer from a long time and go back to use it, my status stay "away" wheras it was online at the time I moved away.

The feature that change my status to "away" seams to be the one described in bug #544242. However this should not append because Martin Mai says in comment #6 that it's fixed in maverick but not in lucid. So what part on Ubuntu changes my status to away ?

Because this issue is resolved in maverick we are going to make this as dup of #544242. Since it's a feature request, it probably won't get backported to Lucid.
