I want to be able to go invisible in iChat, like I can via Gmail. How can I do this?

When using Gmail in iChat before 10.7 you can't go invisible. I'm using Adium to be able to go invisible when I login via Gmail.

iChat doesn't show Invisible for me! –  Atul Goyal Dec 16 '11 at 22:04
    
Yup, I don't see it either. –  daviesgeek Dec 16 '11 at 22:46
    
What version of OS X are you running? I'me running 10.7 Lion –  Slick Dec 20 '11 at 20:56
    
More important than which version of OS X, what service (AIM? Y!? MSN? Jabber?) are you connecting too? In the case of Jabber, at least knowing who the host is will help. –  Jason Salaz Dec 29 '11 at 8:35
    
Not working for me either on 10.7 Lion. I've got Jabber on Google Talk, Bonjour and Facebook configured. –  bouke Dec 29 '11 at 8:36
