The idle status is based on what is selected in the preference for idle. We
are using 'Based on keyboard or mouse use' here, and I think that is the
default.

Perhaps if the users with this problem could vote up ticket
http://developer.pidgin.im/ticket/7629 it would help get the problem
resolved sooner.
