you can hide it ...

(as tufenuf shows you) but you can't disable it or the OS can't function properly as the OS and all applications function on time slices.

Having said that, you could REMOVE the battery from the motherboard and see what happens.

The system clock is there for a purpose -

... such as giving an auto time stamp for your e-mails messages, time stamp for documents creation (e.g. for later searching purpose), monitoring the currency of your anti-virus program, etc. ... so, are there any reasons why you want it disabled ? Some problems, perhaps ?
