Sorry if this is a bit off-topic. I figure the TF2 board is the best place to ask questions about the Steam client.

You mean like close itself out when you're not doing anything?

No, like set your friends profile to away.

I was under the impression it already did that, unless you were in game. Then your online status shouldn't show anyway.

If you're talking about idling in-game and you want to let people know, I would just change your name or something.

It automatically sets your status to snooze if your computer screen turns off.

Sounds like a load of hoopla to me.

Yeah, if my friend is any indication, any time he's not in-game and away, it auto-sets him, then snoozes a while after. Once he's back it auto-onlines him, too.

It seems like what you guys are looking for is some sort of P. Diddy-style shrimping vessel.

Yeah, I'm pretty confident it already does this.

People ignore the away anyway, and I see the following a dozen times a month.

"hello

hey
