In Unix, unlike Windows, in order to copy a text you just need to highlight the text you want to copy. I really hate this feature because sometimes I highlight without intention text I don't want to copy and it overrides the last text I really wanted to copy.
Do you know any way to tell Unix not to copy anything by highlight, but only by a hotkey.

Unix itself does not do this. But the window manager you are using does.

I assume you are running a Linux distribution? Which one?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
