    Or at least make it so a user can set the amount of time before auto-idle kicks in

    This is a basic function of most chatting applications, there's no reason why Discord shouldnt have it.     

     

    Make it so that we can set an amount of time before idle status kicks in automatically.    I want to be online constantly when I'm in proximity to my computer. 

    Its infuriating that I cant make myself permanently online and then be trusted to set myself to away when im actually away.

    I'd also like this to be a thing, for me it's because I've noticed that idle messes with Spotify syncing when listening to music with friends.

    I have a particular friend who likes to go off and do things while listening to music with me, but every time she goes idle, the sync disconnects and she finds it rather frustrating ^_^'.

    Being able to turn off auto-idle would be a quick fix, or just allow Spotify sync to work when idle but I'm not quite sure the specifics for that one o.o. I think it'd be easier just to add a "disable auto-idle" switch in settings, or at the very least like 'WICKED_AWS0ME' said extend the timer as having a longer time to connect back to the app would be less frustrating.

    Please kindly consider ~

    Good idea. Maybe they can just make an option to set the delay as well.

    I'll be honest, I just don't want people to know whether or not I'm actively using the computer.  The automatic idle status prevents me from doing that.  I know I can switch to Do Not Disturb mode, but that prevents me from receiving notifications.  And Invisible mode may make people think I'm not there at all.

    It's a privacy thing.  I just want to be online, not switching statuses based on my activity.  I'm not aware of any other major IM platform that doesn't give you at least some control over this.
