DeactivateConnection() method deactivates the connection, but if another (or 
the same) connection is marked as "Connect automatically" it will be re-
connected right away.

If you want to prevent reconnecting, you need to use another method (that is 
called by nm-applet as well): org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.Device.Disconnect

This method disconnects the device and prevents it from auto-connecting until 
it is connected manually again.

dbus-send --system --print-reply --dest=org.freedesktop.NetworkManager 

(Change /org/freedesktop/NetworkManager/Devices/1 to your device)

You can use too:
nmcli dev disconnect iface wlan0   (for Disconnect)
nmcli con down id "Auto APNAME"  (for DeactivateConnection)
