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

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.

Hi anuneznyc, 
How about setting your status Invisible?
Skype -> Online Status -> Invisible.
So next time you login it will be invisible only unless n until you go online again it will always be invisible.
