How do I stop a VM?

To stop a Virtual Machine (VM), you must be logged into the Cloud Portal.  To log into Cloud Portal you must first log into, then select Services > Cloud and launch Cloud Portal.

To stop a VM:

1) In Cloud Portal, click on the Instances tab.
2) Locate the VM you wish to stop and click the Actions link, then select Stop.
3) Confirm you wish to stop the VM.

Your VM will stop.  Please note that you will continue to be charged for a VM which is stopped.  If you wish to cease being charged for a VM, you must Destroy the VM.
