CDS 2.x - Create an acquisition method without collecting MSD data

I have a GC/MS (8890 GC with 5977b HES MSD) that is also configured with an FID and PDHID. I would like to create an FID/PDHID-only method, where the MSD remains off the entire run and does not collect data. I haven't figured out how to do this so my temporary fix thus far has been to limit the MSD run time to 0.1 min.  MassHunter has a radio button in the Instrument-->Inlet/Injection Types menu where you can uncheck "Use Mass Spec," which is what I was hoping to find somewhere in CDS 2.5.
