Yes, it can, after you specify a number of minutes.

See image below: Go to the Skype Options, then to the General Settings, and then you can specify when you want Skype to change your status to away. alt text Hope that helps!

Is that haven't used Skype for 5 minutes or haven't used computer? –  Casebash Oct 23 '10 at 21:12
