Closing a stack vs. setting visible to false

I have a stack with some QuickTime players objects.  When closing and 
reopening the stack the VRs in the players are reset to their default 
view.  I can add code to reset this without too much trouble but I'm 
wondering it is just easier to catch the closeStackRequest handler and 
set the visible of the stack to false so the players aren't reloaded 
the next time.  Is setting the visible to false pretty much the same as 
having the stack closed but still in memory?  Are there any gotchas I 
should be aware of?
