It is insanely annoying.

Soon I will add my system & eGPU details or a build link to this my signature to give context to my posts

Well 1. yes there is
do the following in the terminal:

launchctl unload -F /Library/LaunchAgents/com.NVIDIA.CUDASoftwareUpdate.plist; sudo rm -f /Library/LaunchAgents/com.nvidia.CUDASoftwareUpdate.plist

2. I'm seriously thinking about adding it as default to my script, just as deactivating NVIDIA driver updates. It just breaks stuff and if you want to update just run the script in -r... but that's beside the point.
Should it not work for some reason get back to me...

It is pretty annoying for all of us who have to log in, *popup appears*, connect eGPU, log out, log in *popup reappears with all the other windows*

On the other hand, will that disable update checks? I'd still vote for killing it by default if I had to do a manual check now and then, but it's not such an easy choice.

unfortunately yes, CUDA updates are checked as soon as the .prefpane is opened
NVIDIA drivers can do that in the background. However, as these only work on specific version on macOS and they mostly need patchwork anyway you can also disable them by default, I guess...
I think I see another default in the script as well as a parameter to change it... I'll do it sometime in the future as my hands are filled right now or maybe as a quick offtrack for pauses of other work

Hi @fr34k, thanks for the great possible solution. Unfortunately it doesn't work for me, I get this:

▶ sudo launchctl unload -F /Library/LaunchAgents/com.nvidia.CUDASoftwareUpdate.plist

/Library/LaunchAgents/com.nvidia.CUDASoftwareUpdate.plist: Could not find specified service
Any ideas? The plist file is there so not sure what is wrong. I don't have the card connected btw, in case that should make a difference.

@dangerous25
wow, thank you
I've no even found a bug in the script
I've updated the original command...
