Is there a way of disabling a snap from automatically starting?

I installed the microk8s snap, which is very cool, however it starts automatically every time I restart my computer. I can stop it when I have logged in but it eats all my CPU and chews up disk time. Sometimes it can take several minutes just to get a gui up.

I can stop the service using microk8s.stop once I get a terminal running.

I want to be able to start the snap when it's needed, but this seems to integrate as a core service.

Any help is definitely appreciated!


You can disable services with snap disable (name) and enable when you need it with snap enable (name).

You can see the names of services in snap info (snapname).
