If I understand correctly what you're asking, simply start Gnus with

  M-x gnus-unplugged RET

instead of

  M-x gnus RET

. If, however, the servers/groups you don't want Gnus to check on
startup are not managed by the agent, then you will probably want
to set the variable `gnus-activate-level' to a value lower than
the level of the groups you don't want to have checked on startup,
and/or change the group level of those groups.

See

  M-: (info "(gnus) Group Levels") RET

for details.

Does this solve the problem?
