Question: stop automatic simplification

So, Maple is quite helpful in that it will automatically make certain simplifications for me.  But what if I don't want it to.  For example, if I enter 2*(2+x), how do I get it to not just simply return 4+2*x?


Consider this to by end goal:

evalb(2*(2+x) = 4+2*x) => false
