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.

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.
