Hide comment box until needed

Forgive me if this is a really basic question, but I'm finding it rather confusing.

I'm using comments on pages, and I want to stop the comment reply form appearing until needed, but the 'Leave a Reply' form box displays on the pages regardless, and I can't figure out how to make it appear only when someone wants to post a comment.

I've enabled #'allow comments on pages' and have styled the footer for 'page' pages in ATO settings: %comments('Leave a comment', 'Comments (1)', 'Comments (%)', 'dontshow')%
That all seems to work and I can see the footer bar, but the form box is also showing.

Is there a way to stop the box displaying until needed? It seems like a really basic requirement; am I just being dense here?
