Google Talk Away Status
Ok I can't tell if this is the HTC One, or Android ICS that is doing this, but it has definitely changed since my Nexus One.
I use Google Talk to chat with lots of other Jabber users. Google Talk is inter-operable with Jabber.
1) When the Nexus One goes to sleep, your on line status stays as On Line.
2) When the HOX goes to sleep it notifies your correspondents that you are away.
#1 is the correct behavior, #2 is not correct.
Your phone is always with you, so it never really should show off line as long as you are logged in and connected.
I noticed this change when moving to my HOX (international). But I can't determine if its
ICS or HOX that is the problem.
Your correspondents can still send you messages, they just have to learn to ignore the "away" status.
(And yes, I realize this is corner case, and not everybody uses this interoperability).

That's totally different than the away indication status messages sent invisibly over the network to the server.
You won't even see the away indication on Android. On another XMPP client you will. Such as on a Linux client like kopete.
There is a setting in Google talk advanced settings that is supposed to control this, and it worked on gingerbread and honeycomb, but that setting is ignored on ICS.
Multitasking does not seem to be involved because launching any other tasks does not trigger the away message, only sleeping the phone.

Don't know what your talking about. All the three xs I've come across after reading this don't have this issue. Try reinstalling talk
Thank me if I helped.... You know I'll do it again Oh, and by the way, Sent from my HTC One X
