I have a movieclip (mymovie.swf) with has a bunch of actionscript in it. I have preloaded this clip into the main movie and then i made it (mymovie.swf) invisible using mymovie._visible=false.

Problem is, mymovie.swf still runs while hidden. So it fires off all the actionscript in it disrupting the main movie. How can i make it invisible without deleting it from stage? Because i will need it to show up instantly later in the playback.
