You can accomplish this by setting a value in a config file.

1. Exit Pidgin
2. Determine where your .purple directory is (information at
3. Add the following line to .purple/gtkrc-2.0 (create it if it doesn't exist):
    gtk-enable-tooltips = 0
4. Start Pidgin again

If that doesn't work, you can try changing the value of tooltip_delay
in .purple/prefs.xml, but this is an older method and I suspect it
won't be necessary.
