Alerts not working, even with check box

Alerts not working, even with check box

Post by Paul E Col » Tue, 22 Jan 2008 21:21:12


Hi.

I'm using Live Messenger 8.1.0178 on Windows XP with Service Pack 2.

Although I have ticked the two boxes "Display alerts when contacts come
online" and "Display alerts when a message is received", I never get the
slide-up alert boxes any more. I used to get those alerts, and I might
have changed something since then, but I don't know what other settings
might be involved. Any ideas?

Eq.

Greetings Paul,

Are you set to 'Busy' when you're trying these? When you're within the busy status, all
alerts are suppressed from displaying, regardless of your settings.

I've been looking for this topic... no, I am not set to busy and I don't
have the box checked to have IM set to busy when idle. I am using Vista.
The alerts work just fine while I am "online" (actively working on computer)
but if my screen saver (slide show) is active I don't get any alerts when
messages arrive.

Hi Roy,

That's also normal and this will affect some full-screen games too. There's no setting for
that I'm afraid as its 'by design'.
