The easiest way is to edit it's upstart file (/etc/init/tgt.conf or
similar), and add a fake event to it's 'start on' line.
So if it was previously
> start on started dbus
Turn it into
> start on (started dbus and myfakeevent)
Since myfakeevent is never emitted by the system, the job will never
start automatically, however you'll still be able to start it manually

Hope this helps,
