You needn't any commands for doing this.

there isn't a "shut down" command for those active devices.

you must physically turn off the power.

Provided you discipline yourself to save the configuration each change, then you can simply remove the power or switch off. If in doubt, save the configuration to NVRAM before you switch off. But there is no concept of "closing down".

Hi Kevin,

The only command that would be close would be the 'reload' command but this just reset's the router.

Hope this helps, Please vote below if so.

Regards,

Justin
