Windows 7: Closing of WLM forces the program to close

Closing of WLM forces the program to close

Its been happening since i installed WLM (Windows live messenger) everytime i press the red x on the top right of the program it exits the program and i have to log back in again. Its quite annoying when one forgets that this happens so i was wondering if this is normal for everyone else? Apparently it isnt because when i did a google of it i couldnt find any hits. There are workarounds for minimising to tray when pressing the - button but thats not what i want.

Shouldnt the program go to System tray or something when i close it like any other program that should or has the ability to do so. (Like my Steam or skype program).
