sign on invisible in gaim - NOT invi after sign on


Hi,

I use gaim for yahoo IM and I was wondering if I could sign on invisible. I don't mean signing on visible and then setting the away to "invisible". If I do that, people can see me when I sign in and then immediately become invisible... pretty obvious to the other person that I'm still there and invisible. Beats the point of the invisible option. Someone help me to sign on invisible. Thanks.

-Sarav

Yeah, it would be nice if a plugin was available -- perhaps GAIM will include this feature sometime soon *crosses fingers*

Until then, I'll just use ymessenger from http://messenger.yahoo.com/
