This is bad idea. It would cause ALL interfaces not to come up at boot,
including lo, which can cause some deamons not to start and other to behave

Removing auto clause from wlan0 (or whatever you wifi interface name is)
in /etc/network/interfaces should be enough for stopping auto connect at
startup if you are not also autostarting some gui misconfiguration program.
