It is not possible to suppress the automatic saving of a working file
in a safe manner.  Attempting to do so takes the risk of losing work
when you are editing a file that you do plan to save later, and didn't
get to, because for example, the machine crashed.

When you quit the file C-x k or the emacs session C-x C-c, you will be prompted
to save any unsaved files.  At that time, tell emacs not to save the file.
This method is safe.
