How to show ATC you are away?

I am currently flying from RCTP to RJAA and I was wondering how to inform ATC that you are away from your device? Thanks!

You must be away from your device for more than 2 minutes

Once you are away for more than 2 minutes you will automatically show as “Away” to ATC on your aircraft strip.

Make sure you’ve read the ATC Manual thoroughly to get a basic understanding on how to communicate with ATC. Not to put you on edge during your flight, I’ve seen too many people go in super excited then come out with a violation because they didn’t know how to communicate with ATC.

Also tells you more about how we treat people who are away in there.
