Sublime Text 3 on my OS X 10.9 suffers from significant typing lag.

Before I start start removing installed packages, I would like to ask if disabling a package (adding it to the ignored_packages list) prevents it from being loaded into memory.

IF that is the case then I can safely disable packages rather than remove them, which is is a greater hassle.


Disabling Packages

To temporarily disable packages, you can add them to the ignored_packages list in your Packages/User/Preferences.sublime-settings file. Packages will be loaded or unloaded as needed when the settings file is saved.

To answer your question. Yes, you can try disabling packages to single out the one causing your performance issues; without uninstalling any of the packages.
