A "boss button". In a lot of the old DOS games, leisure suit larry, space quest, kings quest, ect. there was often a key assigned to be the "boss button" usually like F12 or something. The idea was that when you're playing your game at work and your boss walks by you hit F12 real quick and your game screen disappears and pseudo DOS screen with a C:\ command line appears to make it look like you're not goofing off. Such a feature added to the client would be most excellent, hit F12 and your game is immediately minimized to your system tray with some non-threatening little icon. Also when you're in "boss mode" all sounds coming from your client are muted as not to arouse any suspicion.

After your boss/parents/girlfriend/wife/friends leave the room you can just hit F12 again to bring your game back up again, or just double click on the icon in your system tray.

OR instead of minimizing your client when you press F12 the client disappears all together and runs in the background like a ghost and the ONLY way to get it to reappear is to either hit F12 again, or do ctrl-alt-del to bring up Windows Task Manager and switch the client back on. er hrm. or maybe not. after reviewing the ctrl-alt-del option it looks like that might not be a possible route, but i dont know enough to say for certain.

You are too exhausted to do that.
