Just don't fill it up all the way.

The water level will also be sucked down the T line slightly with the pump on and the water rushing under the still liquid.

The moving water creates a low pressure and the water above in the line is sucked down into the loop slightly.

My personal way of sealing my T line involves a plastic thimble and duct tape.

And yes, I don't care what some might think, no matter how good you connect every line, and cap your res/T.

You will loose water out of the system at some rate.

Anything that closes it off will do.

In one of mine I use an unused valve from an aquarium setup and the other uses one of my fill/bleed kit valves from a Swiftech kit.

Obviously I prefer using valves to ensure that water can't spill, but it is not necessary unless the pc is portable (as one of mine is :D)
