Every time I restart the computer, or resume from standby the MeMenu goes offline and won't let me change my status. The only way to make it work again is to disable Google talk and then re enable it.

Am I missing something in the settings or is this the intended operation. Thanks in advance for your help.

I doubt it's the intended way to behave... – JanC Oct 26 '10 at 2:04
Thats what I thought. Its a shame because it renders the Me Menu useless for me. – LongBoolean Oct 26 '10 at 13:34

That's not a bug at all. Me Menu is inactive when no instant messengers is started. What status do you expect from it?

I thought that the point of having the Me Menu was so I wouldn't need to start an instant messenger every time I reboot. I expect it to be integrated into the operating system. – LongBoolean Oct 26 '10 at 20:11
But without connection cannot be a status. Maybe add messenger to autostart? – Extender Oct 27 '10 at 9:16
The Me menu is always there when I start up. And I have an Ethernet connection. – LongBoolean Oct 27 '10 at 15:27
I mean connection to some messenger (AOL, MSN, ICQ) or social network. – Extender Oct 27 '10 at 15:42
I don't think I understand the point your making. Isn't the Me Menu acting as a messenger? – LongBoolean Oct 27 '10 at 20:54
