I'm not aware of a way to do what you're requesting via Pidgin.

Here's a small script I created to disable a pidgin account programatically.

It only works on Windows and can must run while the user is signed out of
the application.

It iterates through the accounts.xml DOM and sets the "auto-login"
parameter to "0" or "1" depending.


Please take caution before running. To be safe, it does create one backup
of your accounts.xml called accounts.xml.bak before saving changes.
