wpa_supplicant seems to somehow be auto started at boot.

# ps auxwww |grep wpa
root       915  0.0  0.0  28824  1232 ?        S    17:36   0:00 /sbin/wpa_supplicant -u -s

How do I disable this service, prevent it from auto starting ?

Should be enough to remove the file

/usr/share/dbus-1/system-services/fi.epitest.hostap.WPASupplicant.service

Move it somewhere so you can restore it, rather than immediately delete it. ;-)

For Ubuntu 13.04, I have to move the file fi.w1.wpa_supplicant1.service –  el_Salmon Dec 7 '13 at 18:43
