    How you stay AFK in Chat channels?

    Every time I leave or stay afk for more than 30 minutes in any channel it says Lost connection to battle.net?

    I know you get dropped if you try to bring 2 chars from the same acc in the channel but that happens almost instantly (at least for me).

    Your issue sounds like the work of your ISP, at least I can idle in the channel for hours without touching the keyboard.

    Same thing happens to me. It's my ISP. Sometimes it does the same thing in game. It just says connection lost, but it takes a lot longer to happen than in the chat rooms.

    if your on dialup it could be your modem disconnecting due to insufficient activity
    run aim/msn/yahoo messenger on away/dnd (they make it a little laggier downloading ads/crap) or just make a private game and leave the message log up (if your waiting for whispers), keeps enough activity to keep me from ci/dc

    Try drinking coffee, smoking or calling some girl for a pointless 2-hour conversation. Could also take a hike. Dunno about you, but that helps me to stay away from the computer for long periods of time.
