Yes. Go to Xbox Guide buttonPreferencesNotifications and edit the options. You can also set your Xbox Guide online status to "Busy".

Why the hell is this listed under 'Personal Settings?' No wonder noone can find it… :/ –  rightfold Jan 8 '11 at 23:35

Apparently, this has changed. As of 11/8/13, it's now:

Xbox Guide button → Preferences → Notifications.
