AIM Away Message Won't Stay Up when kicked off and back on

  1. A few days ago, I bought a new computer (HP Pavilion a1310n) and installed AIM on it. I am permanently connected to the internet through an LAN. The problem I'm having since I got this new computer is whenever there is a quick lapse in my connection (which happens a few times a day), AIM will sign off and then automatically reconnect, but my away message will not go back up. Is there some way to set up AIM so that it will put my away message back up automatically when it logs back on? I never seemed to have this problem with my old computer, so I'm sure there's some way to do it. Thanks for reading!

    Never mind - the problem turned out to be related to the Hibernate feature in Windows XP. Disabling this feature solved the problem.
