Okay, so this might count as the dumbest question ever asked in this forum. When I’m signed in, there’s that little button beside my user name in any post that I’ve submitted that’s green when I’m online. I see other people’s buttons go grey, which means their off-line or not signed in.
So, I usually close my laptop to put it to sleep, and I’ve just been assuming that the little button beside my user name goes from green to grey on everyone else’s computer when I do that. But the thing is, I don’t know - it’s like the refrigerator light; how can I tell if it goes out when I close the door? Am I exposing myself to identity theft by not logging out of the SDMB when my computer is unattended? Can anyone tell me? Many thanks.
