Worked briefly, then stopped - This worked nicely when first installed, but after a couple of days just stopped. Changes to my status made through this just don't affect either Adium or Skype. I sent a support request and got no response. I'd be delighted to update this if the application started working again - I really liked it even without the ability to create custom messages (though that would be great).

Doesn't go invisible on lid close - I was hoping to use this to fix Skype's broken status reporting (which now always shows me as Online since I use Skype for iOS). This works great to set my status to Away after an idle period, but it leaves me Online if I close the lid. Would you please consider adding this feature? (Register for NSWorkspaceWillSleepNotification in NSWorkspace's notificationCenter, go Invisible, and come back Online when the Mac wakes up.)

Works Great - Almost 5 Stars - Works great to automate updating multiple IM clients with the same status & message. I'm Away remembers last custom message. 5th Star would go to keyboard shortcuts for saved custom messages. I use another keyboard macro app to expand my custom messages, which completes solution for me.
