    When I turn click on ichat it automatically signs in.

    I can't find the place where you can turn that OFF.

    Where is it?

    Log out of the account and then go to iChat preferences. Click on the accounts tab and then find the account you want to not log in and select it. There should be a checkbox that says "Log in to this account when iChat starts" or something along those lines. Uncheck it and you're good to go.

    There's no option for that in iChat, but if you set iChat offline before quitting, it will start up the same way.
