Chapter 18. Using iChat AV > Logging In to Your Accounts

Logging In to Your Accounts

Unless you've configured the Account Information settings otherwise, iChat AV automatically logs in to your default accounts when it starts up and logs out when you quit. To manually log in to or out of an account, use the Log In and Log Out selections under the iChat application menu. If you have multiple AIM, .Mac, or Jabber accounts, you can switch between them by choosing Switch To from the iChat menu.

A few system events can be used to trigger iChat or shut it down. If you have an iSight camera, iChat can be set to automatically launch when the camera iris is opened, which turns on the camera.

Similarly, the Fast User switching feature automatically logs you out when you switch to another user account; this can be changed to keep you online but show you are away. Use the Video and General panes of the iChat AV preferences to make these adjustments, respectively.
