Depth of field preview button triggering flash

Ok I know that the pressing of the DOF button will set off the flash, which is fine if that's what I am trying to do. However I'm getting sick and tired of accidentally nudging the button and triggering a fit of light from my speedlite 550ex while shooting events. It creates an unnecessary distraction for everyone in the room. It seems like an unfortunate position for the button to be in as it's so easy to catch when stepping away from a shot and moving around. You hold the camera differently and for me I can't help catching the damn button. Is there any way to disable the button or set the flash so that it does not respond?
