Yes you can turn it off. On mine it refreshes every six pages.

Yes, it has the option. The very first Kindle 4 software version ONLY had the each page refresh disabled - and I believe it is still disabled by default. In later versions the ability switch this is the "Page Refresh" option on the third Settings page.

If there is large imagery on the page, the auto-refresh can still happen anytime, but for text it is every sixth page change. For example, reading the Kindle user guide, which has large images, will refresh more often than every six pages.

And just to be clear, I just tested this on my $69 Kindle with the latest 4.1.1 software to be sure.

Personally I prefer to keep the every page refresh on, but that's just me. I like the consistency of knowing the refresh happens always, not just sometimes. Also there is less ghosting that way. But the every-six-pages refresh of course works just fine and is perfectly usable for those that like that.
