"Start service immediately" Option

In the "General" category of service options there is a checkbox: "Start service immediately"  At 10.0 it was possible to uncheck this option to prevent a service from automatically starting in the event the ArcGIS Server instance was recycled.  Now, at 10.1, this checkbox seems to always be disabled.  If the service is already started then the "Start service immediately" checkbox is checked; if the service is stopped then the option is unchecked, but in neither scenario can I actually modify it.

Ultimately the problem I am trying to solve is that I have a large number of services that I don't want trying to start when ArcGIS Server (or the server itself) is rebooted.

Any ideas?
