In this tutorial, I will be showing you how you can disable Network Manager (or any other service) from starting at startup. To do this, you will need to be in the terminal as root or with sudo permission. To do this, all you need to do is run this command

update-rc.d -f network-manager remove

This service should now no longer start up automatically and should only ever start if you tell it to.
