Suggested years ago. Has never happened.
Of course the easiest way is, if you're going to be away That long is to just log off.
I have a suspicion that such an option is purposefully not implemented to prevent people from sitting in chat while not active for long periods of time.

Seems if someone is so sensitive then you aren't responsible for that. And coddling that level of sensitivity would actually be to their detriment.
A slightly more complicated option would be to change your pm box message when you go away and put it back when you're there. Just keep that page open.
Well it's the one I chose. So it's the one I answer to. (=

But if the software won't support it then not much of a hope.

For the record, this feature is something that is on Admin's radar. Just at this time other improvements/upgrades are higher on the priority list.
