    Busy Status

    I really need to know more about this option. How it is chosen, how it can
    all of a sudden display you as 'busy' when your not, and any other info that
    can be passed onto me on the subject. I am trying to get all info I can to
    explain to someone about it who is not tech savy(I barely am).

    Greetings Jim,

    The only reason you should go "Busy" automatically is if you use a full-screen application
    like a game, an installer that takes over the screen, or that sort of thing. This automatic
    feature can be turned off in the first screen of the options, near the bottom of the options
    window.

    In the busy status, Messenger will not display its pop-up alerts, so you can proceed without
    being annoyed.
