Ever since my father go his PC, his MSN Messenger refuses to go to the away status after the set number of minutes. Updated to latest version, no difference.
I know the system does go idle because if i set the monitor to swtich off after a set time, it does just that.
Any ideas?

There is more to it than that. I have been through the setup more than once. It didn't work with the version installed by XP, and doesn't work with the latest. It just stays "online".
