In This Posting, I described how the remaining WiFi-behavior of my laptop ‘Klystron’, that I wanted to change was, that if I left the laptop unattended for a few hours, the ‘Pidgin’ IRC client would disconnect. At first, I thought that maybe this was another behavior of the Realtek chip-set. But this time, it was not.
Last night I had installed the Pidgin plugin ‘Away-On-Lock’, which was not installed when this misbehavior was taking place. And I seem to have replaced this behavior successfully, with only showing the chat-room that I am Away, if I leave that laptop idle for a few hours.
