This thread said the same thing, had more comments and likes, and they have said they've completed it but it doesn't look like it has been from the info the admin shared. Comments are now closed as they claim it has been completed. Very frustrating!
The PDRM (People's Democratic Republic of Microsoft) also forces Edge to be installed as a part of the Windows update (https://www.theverge.com/21310611/microsoft-edge-browser-forced-update-chromium-editorial), and when you join Teams meetings, the default is always video camera "ON" forcing the users to switch it off every time you join a Teams meeting.
So I think everyone's protests here are falling on deaf comrades' ears.

100% AGREE! We need this ASAP!
Agree 100% - very frustrating for my colleagues and me.
As most of us using Teams work remotely it looks to your colleagues and managers that you are often AWAY … very unprofessional and wrong.
If we cannot switch off the automatic changing of status to AWAY at least we should be able to adjust the delay - how often are you not working on something for 10 minutes without actively using Teams.

Lack of adjustable delay is frustrating. Was a good feature in Skype for Business.
100% AGREE, ridiculous. At least when we had Skype we could set the timer. AWAY appears to management we are NOT at our desk working, when in fact, working on something else not using the desktop
Please FIX this
Giving only 5 minutes is just ridiculous. It will appear to my management that I am not available or I am not working. When in reality I am just sorting through plans and not using the computer. Stop the micromanagement this is creating. Thanks

Teams can safely change a person's status if their PC is locked or asleep or powered off or if there's no net connection. However, Teams should NOT assume a person is away from their desk/PC and/or that they are unavailable simply because they haven't touched their mouse or keyboard for a while.
When I'm reviewing paperwork or working on another device, I may not be active on my PC but that doesn't mean I'm away and it doesn't mean I'm not available!
And, if I manually set my status to available, Teams should not ignore/contradict me after only 5mins. At the very least, we should be able to tell Teams how long to wait before ignoring our instructtions. Please fix it!
Skype Business allowed a setting to be able to set a time frame before it auto populated to AWAY.
