Summary: Changes in idle and auto away..

Initial Comment:
I find the idle/auto away thing very confusing..

First, there is no way to say 'set me idle after x
minutes', without setting it to an away message.  At
least, I can't find it.

Second, I can't figure out really if setting the change
status when idle 'minutes to change status' is from the
last activity (either message sent or mouse/keyboard
usage), or from when idle was set..  It seems to be
from the last activity, but I didn't find that very
clear.  Sometimes it will set the away message without
actually setting you to idle.  If I put the timout at 1
minute, and set it to keyboard/mouse usage, the message
goes on in one minute, but it does not change to idle.
 If I have not messaged anyone for 14 minutes (just
what it happened to be when testing, not sure what
value matters) and set it to idle from last sent
message, it went idle and away.  Very confusing...
