AOL Idle Message

  graham 13:55 29 Mar 2003

Whilst not holding my breath for a solution, as AOL is pretty much 'locked down' to any changes, is there any way to stop the Idle message coming on screen when I have been away for a while, whilst on-line?

Yes there is g but I promised Stokey I would only tell one other AOL regular. Sorry!

Open a chat room and minimise it ti the task bar!. J.

Djohn, good shot -- but if you're on dialup then it will run a little (or a lot) slower. I know you will know this but g may not.

Hi, It is a problem,and some of aol staff are sympathetic to it and they will at times direct you to the one that Stokey recommends. J.

I'm on broadband, expect it will do the trick?

Tried both options on that site, activated them, still getting 'Idle message...'

This program will click the idle message buttons on both aol 7 and 8, despite it being old. Works fine under xp.
