I have just recently purchased a mac and I was playing around on it and turned iMessage and Facetime on. I didn't realise that it then connects with your phone and whatever messages you receive on each device the other receives them also. I don't like this and would like to turn iMessage and Facetime OFF on my mac. Does anybody know how to do this?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.5)

    Good luck with your new computer!

    To turn facetime off, get the Facetime window up on your screen.  Then go to Facetime "preferences"  -- you should see an on/off toggle.  Just click on the off side of the switch.  Note: On my mac I can get to Facetime preferences by clicking on "Facetime" in the upper left hand corner of my screen, a drop down menu will appear.
