I turned off Build Automatically preference but PDS still tries to compile when launching an application or when exiting out of the propject's Property window. Is there a trick to stop the PDS from doing autocompile?

Don't know about the properties window, but Eclipse has an option to turn off build-on-launch. Window > Preferences > Run/Debug > Launching : Build (if required) before launching
There's also an option under Window > Preferences > Progress OpenEdge > Editor > Build for 'compile on save (if required)'.
It still does it when changing Property or Preferences. It says "Full Build . . . ".
Eclipse will still trigger a build "when needed". Any time you change code it becomes "needed". When it gets around to it are based on the values suggested by Peter.
You have to let it complete at least one full build, after that it becomes incremental and much faster. If you cancel the full build, it starts the beginging and does a full build again.
If you don't want the builder at all, then you can disable it for the project completely.
Select project->properties->Builders (tree node in dialog), and disable it from there.
You'll lose a lot of functionality since PDS relies on r-code for a number of things including content assist and the debugger line offsets.
