Good idea.

In most pages there is a check box to enable/disable the specific
feature/app.  It would be really really good to have such a check box in
the snapshots page.  I find myself having to regularly delete individual
snapshots to make space, especially since the expand feature doesn't
work.  At least until that feature works, I've wanted to suspend the
snapshot generation but there seems to be no way to do that from the
plinth interface.
