I don't want to be inundated by "Hello's" every time I boot my PC.

Is there a way of showing me as 'off-line' until I choose to change my online status?

Skype remembers your last status before you sign out. If you want to appear offline the next time your computer starts / you sign in, simply set yourself to appear offline before signing out.
