How to defeating an Active EQ

YannnickHow to defeating an Active EQ
I have an active 3-band EQ block as shown in TUT2 and want to put in ON or OFF. I know some of you, with a passive EQ stack, are switching the connection to ground on and off to achieve this. Does doing the same thing on the inverting gain block of the active EQ will defeat it? And in doing so, the signal still will pass through it: does it will be attenuated or just transformed into a passive EQ?  
I don't want to use a relay or series-switch to select between the EQ or the bypass shortcut.  
Any with suggestion?
