Good nap 😴 always helps with new ideas 💡.
You can pause the instance by clicking the ⏸️ button on your running instance to free up compute resources like GPU, CPU and RAM. All the data will be retained, and will be available when you resume back.
All paused instances will be charged only for the storage. So if you are not planning to return back soon, you can choose to destroy 🗑️ the instance.
When the overall balance goes negative, your paused instances are destroyed automatically after a small period of time - Usually days.
