    if & else statements for controlling timeline

      pls advice what to use for controlling timeline of MC.
      i'm using appearence of background with alpha property from second frame till 5. in 1 and 5 frame stop().
      so i have 4 buttons with different chapters above bg.
      i used action for bg gotoAndPlay(2); it works but every pressing of buttons invoke process of appearence of background.
      but i want to not invoke such process if bacground already appear.
      something like this
      if (_root.bg_mc.stop(5)){
      }else {_root.bg_mc.gotoAndPlay(2);
      it does'nt work
