There should be a way to stop it from showing up, like shutting it down, or exiting the program.
If you are getting the balloon that it's not connected/unavailable, that would indicate to me... that it's constantly trying to access the internet/network, even though you disabled it.
If you must,,, goto your Task Manager, and shut it down from there. That would be safer to do, because you never know... you may need to see other balloons (which are messages), but now you can't.
