Cannot Logout of Skype When Hotmail Open

Has anyone noticed that Skype is now so integrated with hotmail that you cannot logout? If hotmail is open in your browser, then Skype is logged in. If you try to logout of Skype, it logs you totally out of hotmail. I see people complaining about it on the web but hotmail won’t change it because they are trying to be your source for phone calls similar to Viber on phone where you cannot stop people from calling you or turn off ringing notifications.

The only skype options to are to:

  1. Make yourself “Do not disturb” or “Invisible”, but the phone will still ring.
  2. Mute ringing (BUT ONLY FOR 24 hours, then it automatically starts ringing again)

Really drives me crazy getting unexpected phone calls on my computer just because I have hotmail open.
