Settings -> Preferences -> MISC. tab

In the section that says File Status Auto Detection make sure that Enable is unchecked

Settings → Preferences → Misc. → Uncheck Enable under File Status Auto-Detection

Also, as Jet pointed out, you can also have 'Update silently' checked if you want it to auto-update the file.

Uncheck 'Enable' to disable update detection or check both 'Enable' and 'Update silently' to automatically update once a change is made.

    Or check "Update Silently" if you want to update it automatically. – Jet Jun 1 '14 at 19:25
  • Wish you could have only the files in "tail"/monitoring mode update silently. (...goes off to look for existing GitHub Issue or open one...) – dbreaux Aug 30 '18 at 14:44
