    Disabling guest login

    I want to know how to disable guest login but keep the guest login, similar to previous versions of ubuntu. Tutorials on the internet show how to disable the guest account completely. I want it so that I can only logon to the guest account while logged in myself.
    Any help would be appreciated,
    Thanks

    This will permanently disable the guest account completely, not allowing guests to login from startup (which is what i want) but not allowing me to switch to guest account while logged in.

    This seems to be our only option at the moment.
