I think the problem is you're looking for a verb to mean
    stop showing this window and don't do anything else

You don't need a button for that -- the window manager's "x" is
sufficient.  But if you do have one, I always liked "Dismiss" because
it implies only that the window is going away.

Maybe "go away" would be even better, and might make people smile, too.
