Allow a VM to be instantly turned off
At the moment, we cannot instantly Power Off a VM (ie "Pull the Plug").
Instead when you click STOP or run the Sop-AzureRMVm cmdlet, the VM goes through a clean shutdown..
This is fine, unless you have a "Production" machine that has, for example, locked up and needs an instant power off and reboot. (ie the equivalent of hitting a reset button or pulling the plug out of the wall)
it can take anywhere from 15 minute to 30 minutes to just power down a VM in Azure when all we want is to power cycle it to get it back up and running as quickly as possible.
