You could try to add this code to your custom HTML (in the dead section)

 
<script>
  AJS.toInit(function(){
    <!-- Disable "notifyWatchers" checkbox by default (on edit pages only) -->
    AJS.$('input#notifyWatchers').attr('checked', false);
  });
</script>

All credit should go to this page.

Hi Alex, so it is only on global level... Thank you for the anwer))

do you need to restart Confluence for this to work?

I needed to place this at the end of the body section for it to work for both direct and linked access to edit pages.  Worked great, thanks!

There is a small piece of JavaScript you can add to your HTML header that will 'remember' if you uncheck the box for a few hours using a cookie. We love it this way, since it allows us to disable it, but it re-enables after a few hours in the spirit of open communication and sharing.
