If this is Windows, close it down in the system tray, on the bottom
right. You will find that MS Messenger also continues to run there when
the main interface is closed down. (More drastic: you could use task
manager to kill it, but that should not be needed.)

What site? Pidgin is a client, that can use multiple services
(including AIM). There is no site, associated with Pidgin itself, that
provides any instant messaging services!

As above, you need to go to the system tray, at the bottom right, and
quit it there.
