What does that mean in Gmail?(Below)

Sometimes people's status is shown with a circle or a camera that has clock hands on it. What does that mean?

That means that they are logged on., but they have not done anything on their account for a while now (about half an hour I think, but I'm not positive. It's saying that they might have forgotten that they are logged on, and so don't bother messaging them as they probably won't get it.
