HipChat Cloud - Away/Available status changes without me changing it

I'm using the desktop client, I have the idle feature turned off. I will set my self to away with a status. Usually when I come back I am set to available without a status. After some time, I check back and  the status goes back to away. I also have an issue where I will set it to away, I will come back and it's actually still set to away, I change it to available and then hit okay but after a while it reverts back to being away. It's super frustrating because my managers either think I've been away for hours when I haven't been or I look like I'm available when I'm not.
