powerpivot slow to load

I have built a powerpivot workbook and every time the user loads it, it runs a process reading and writing OLAP queries.  I update all this data before distribution from an Access DB and want to turn off all the data reads when opening the spreadsheet.  The prompts at the bottom tell me to press escape to stop but I would like to shut this off when I distribute the files as it takes about 20 seconds to load with this process running.

Hi there,

What version of Excel and Power Pivot are you using? The data model has to load. It shouldn't have to refresh unless you're refreshing it's data connections or pivots, but you can't get away from the model loading.
