Description

I don't want the time of the guest OS auto-synced by the Guest Additions, but still wish to use other features of it.

Could this function be made OPTIONAL?

This is possible but needs some manual setup. For Linux guests, edit the file /etc/init.d/vboxadd-service and search the line

daemon $binary > /dev/null

To disable the time synchronization, change that line to

daemon $binary --disable-timesync > /dev/null

Use

/usr/sbin/VBoxService --help

to find out other options.

The same for Windows guests: Open regedit and search for VBoxService.exe. Append --disable-timesync to the command line.
