When I lock my computer my Spark status does not automatically switch to away. Is there a setting I’m missing?

What version of Spark and operating system?

Windows 10

Spark 2.6.3

Indeed. Same with the latest 2.7 versions. It only switches to the Idle state when you click on the lock screen and login screen is shown (presumably you have a password set up). This works fine with Windows XP, Windows 7 and even Windows 8.1. So i assume this is another quirk of Windows 10. I have filed a ticket for this, but probably not much can be done on the Spark’s side. Also posted this to Windows 10 Insider feedback, though not hoping for a quick fix.
