Ok, so most leaguers are aware that to change your status to "Away" you simply click the green light thats next to your name above your friends list. This feature is immensly helpful to people like myself who prefer to stay online while doing other things so i can be alerted when friends become available. Naturally i always set my status as "Away" to avoid endless game requests.

Now for the issue, it seems that randomly the status changes to "Available" without me even having the league window open. This is extremely annoying because i then get hit with game invites. I just want to know if others are also experiencing this, or if a fix is coming. Thanks

BUMP this **** is still going on and it's fkn infuriating. If I set my status to away, I should remain away until I set it back to online MYSELF.

I have had this happen. I notice that I will click "away", walk away from the computer for a moment and if it's after so long and I move the mouse it will go into "available" mode. It's been this way for months now.

There are 4 different types of statuses in league of legends.

Online (green):
-When you are logged on but not in game, in queue, in champion select.
-This status is the default one and shows when you log on.

In Queue/Game/Champion Select/Spectating (yellow)
-Shown while in one of the above

Away (red)
-This type of Away is done manually by clicking the Green online circle. You will be shown as "Away to your friends.

Idle Away Status (red)
-Looks identical to manual Away status.
-This one shows when no activity is recorded on your computer for a certain amount of time. (Not sure how long 5 mins, 10?)
-This one will automatically go back to Online when activity is recorded on your computer.
-You can go from "Away" to "Idle Away".

To answer your question, you were changed from "Away" to "Idle Away" and then back to "Online" once activity was recorded. Someone probably shook your mouse or accidentally bumped the table or something leading to your Computer thinking you were back.
