How can I default the subcategories in the ‘Manage Categories’ page to be closed?

I need a lot of sub categories eg: Movie Genres, Games Genres etc for each subcategory, so play station, xbox360 etc all have their own subcategory genres so that they show up in layered navigation.

With all the subcategories defaulting to open it’s becoming a huge list, so would prefer categories to remain closed until I open them. How’s this done?

PS: The reason why I have created subcategories for genres instead of using attributes is because many games or movies will come under several genres, eg: a family, romance, comedy ‘like when harry met sally’. You can’t multiple select in the drop down menu and also enable layered navigation. unless you can think of a better way? (that’s a subsidiary question)
