  2. From the Instance Table, choose the instance to stop.
  3. From the All Actions Dropdown, choose Stop Instance.
  4. Optional: In the Stop Instance Dialog, check the Take a snapshot before stopping Checkbox to capture a snapshot of the instance state before killing the process.
  5. In the Stop Instance Dialog, click the Stop Button.
