To stop an instance
(applies only to instances with EBS root devices)

  1. Right-click the instance and click Stop.
    A confirmation dialog box appears.
  2. Click Yes, Stop.
    Amazon EC2 begins stopping the instance and storing its state offline. You will no longer be charged for the running instance. You’re charged only for Amazon EBS volume storage.
