so i finally got my GPRS to work and the first thing I wanted to try was AIM. I was really hoping that I could leave it on while the Treo is dormant (on my hip, on the cradle, whatever) and it would make me appear available to other users.

Well, it appears that it does, but that it won't tell you about messages unless you switch to the application. So, if someone messages me, I won't be told unless I specifically go to AIM to see if anyone has tried....

Anyone know of a hack or other solution for this? I'd like a notification if someone messages me!
