How Do I Prevent Others From Knowing When I Sign Into Skype?

anuneznyc asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-09
I am using Skype 2.8 for Mac. Every time I sign in or out of Skype (or simply close my laptop lid) my contacts get a notification message to that effect.

Is there a way to turn this off? I don't necessarily want people to know when I've signed into Skype.
