#15417: Reducing I/O activity

 My hard disk drive is going into the standby mode after 10 minutes but I
 have noticed recent wake ups and made a deeper look on what is waking my
 disk up.

 Pidgin seems to save some informations if users in the buddy list
 login/logout or the tray icon changes because of inactivity. To be precise
 Pidgin is creating the files ~/.purple/accounts.xml.save,
 ~/.purple/blist.xml.save, ~/.purple/prefs.xml.save and moving them to the
 original file without .save.

 I think there should be a solution to prevent this I/O activities. For
 example Pidgin could save these changes into the memory and write them
 only to the profile if Pidgin is closed.
