I have a stand-alone Cisco Aironet Access Point and would like to turn off the SSID broadcast but cannot find it in the configuration GUI.  Can anyone help me out?

If you want the access point to allow associations from client devices that do not specify an SSID in their
configurations, you can set up a guest SSID. The access point includes the guest SSID in its beacon. If the guest mode is disabled, the SSID will not be broadcast in the beacon messages. If you do not want clients that do not have a preconfigured SSID to connect to the wireless network, disable the guest SSID feature. For information on how to configure guest mode SSID and disable Guest mode SSID, see the “Creating an SSID Globally” section on page 7-4
Don't know for GUI, but
Ap<config>#dot11 ssid ssid-string
Ap<config-ssid>#no guest-mode
or
AP(config-ssid)#no mbssid guest-mode

SSID-Manager -> Click on SSID in list -> Scroll to bottom of page and set Set Guest Mode SSID to <NONE>.
