Issue

If an existing workflow schedule is disabled via the checkbox on the UI, (as below) the next scheduled workflow instance will still fire off despite being disabled. I.e. if you have a workflow scheduled to run every five minutes, if you disable the schedule at 1:55 PM, the instance scheduled for 2:00 PM will still be started.

Symptoms

Workflow instances that have been scheduled via Management will still be started, despite the schedule being disabled via the Management UI.

Resolution

To disable the scheduled instances without firing off any additional instances, instead of just disabling through the checkbox on the UI, edit the schedule and uncheck the enabled box on the edit wizard.
Select "OK", and hit refresh on the schedules list and the box should now be disabled.
