I have disabled synchronize all offline files before Log on/off/suspend.  Yet still on certain workstations it will still synchronize. Some will on log on others will on log off. Trying to get rid of this feature...HELP!

You can deactivate folder synch as a group policy. Then do gpupdate/force at the PCs to ensure they have latest policy. Policies can take a couple of hours to replicate mind.
Also, make sure the group policy is being applied to all PCs
