Default windows 8.1 diasble activation prompt?

since it's not possible to activate windows 8.1 yet, does anyone know a way to disable the activation prompt that happens ever few hours? it's very annoying because it will pull you out of whatever your doing.

There is an option in the windows action center to disable activation notifications, but the box is greyed out.

Any help?
