gAlwaysIdle - tiny freeware utility that adds some handy extra options to your GTalk messenger in order to help you manipulate your status in a more comprehensive manner.
Editor`s Description
Though Google Talk is one of the most popular instant messaging application, it is also one of the lightest and missing many features. It's meant to be basic and small, and therefore the users needing additional options may have to look for external solution.

The status is one of the features not so well represented in Google Talk. You may choose between available, busy and custom messages, but there's no additional settings for the idle mode, or for any "invisibility" needs.

Happily, there's this little freeware that solves this matter. gAlwaysIdle is a tiny freeware that adds some handy extra options to the context menu (right-click menu) that appears when you right-click Google Talk's tray icon. It lets you choose between the normal (default) idle mode, or enable two special modes: the always idle mode and the "never idle" mode. Therefore you may set your status to show you as you were idle at all time, which is quite similar to the "invisible" mode of other messengers. You may also enable the "never idle" mode to appear as available at all time (great to show your boss that you're actually working and not starring at the screensaver).

That's pretty much all that gAlwaysIdle does. It's also free and extremely simple.

NOTE: this tiny freeware works only with the stand-alone version of GTalk and not with the browser-based version.
