Start emacs with gnus in unplugged mode:
/usr/bin/emacs --funcall gnus-unplugged

Switching betwenn plugged/unplugged: "J j" in groups buffer.
Status of servers buffer: "^" in groups buffer.

In status of servers buffer you may:
* specify which servers are handled by agent
* switch servers to offline and closed (next "g" will query them)

I personally suggest making all on/off servers handled by agent.
