While you are typing your message (which has not been sent yet), the MSN little men will spin for three seconds.
After you send your message, the spinning of the MSN little men will stop instantly. Besides, the MSN little men will also stop spinning at once when all the dialogue boxes are closed.
Attention: The detecting of “
is typing a response…” may sometimes be neglected when the network is too busy. (This is an internal problem of MSN Messenger design.)
3.Cancelling the spinning function

The conditions of indicator light flashing:
1.Blue light flashes when receiving new email
When MSN Messenger detects new email in Hotmail, the blue light around the MSN little men starts to flash.
Attention: When the number of new email informed by MSN Messenger and the actual number of unread email from the user’s Hotmail mailbox differs, the cell phone stand holder will mainly respond to the information provided by MSN Messenger.
2.To keep the light on
You can cancel the flashing of blue light function of the cell phone stand holder, but when there is new email, the MSN little men will still shake as a response.
The detection of the cell phone:
1.Changing the user’s status on MSN Messenger to “Busy” or “ Away”
When the cell phone is placed on the cell phone stand holder, the user’s status on MSN Messenger will be “Online/Available”. Otherwise, if the cell phone stand holder does not detect any cell phone, the user’s status on MSN Messenger will be changed automatically to “Busy” or “Away”. As whether the status is changed to “Busy” or “Away”, it’s up to the user to decide.
2.Cancelling the detection
If you cancel the detection of cell phone from the cell phone stand holder, the changes of the user’s status on MSN Messenger will not be automatic.
