Sometimes I am away from MySpace IM screen and it goes idle faster than I would prefer. Is there any way I can change it?
Yep, there sure is! I know at times we multi-task without realizing how long we’ve left the IM screen, and you don’t really want to log out or let it be shown idle for such a long period of time. Therefore, the best thing you can do is change the time the idle feature goes into effect or turn it completely off.
Here is how to do that with My Space IM. Log in to your My Space Account and go to your Inbox, or if you are log in through the messenger click on the little Red Inbox Icon.
Now go to Settings, which is listed on the upper left hand side. Scroll to Communications>IM. In MySpace IM Settings…
Type the amount of minutes you would like the Idle time to take effect in the show me as “Idle” after _ minutes of inactivity box. I have set mines to 15 minutes; you can set yours to however minutes you will like.
If you want to turn it completely off uncheck the show me as “Idle” after _ minutes of inactivity box.
Now, click the Save Changes Button. You can test your changes by going back to MySpace IM Screen.
