How can we turn off the "reload" alerts?

In NotePad++, I generally run with a few files open. These are log files that are continually updating. I get annoyed when NotePad++ resumes focus and I get a stack of Reload popups informing me that some of my open files have been updated 'by another program,' and would I like to reload them. I would like to turn this alert off and manually reload the files when it is convenient. Is there a way to do this?

If you want to reload manually, go to Settings \ Preferences, then the MISC tab and uncheck Enable under File Status Auto-detection. If you want it to update automatically without the prompt then check that box and also check Update silently.
