This happened to me today during a download on my PC.
If you just want to not automatically login to your Gamertag, then go to Settings, Profile, Sign-in Preferences and set it to off.
But if your Gamertag is already configured with Live, there is no way to set it not to auto login to Live everytime you login to your Gamertag. Only way I know to get around this is unplug your X360 from the Ethernet cable. If it connected wireless, then you have remove the network configuration which isn't practical to do everytime.
Microsoft loves you to be connected to Live even you don't want.
