Stop Package Kit constantly searching for updates

Package Kit is running about every five minutes on my F16 machine. It's hogging a lot of resources when active.

I prefer to perform manual yum updates, and when PK is running, it holds "yum lock" until it finishes. I have no desire for automatic updates and would like to switch this feature off.

I've removed the yum - package kit plugin but this does not stop the problem.

How can I stop package kit from constantly running?
