Delete VM with all associated resources
Deleting a VM is a lot of click work. I have to manually delete the associated Network interface, Network security group, Public IP address. And then, from the associated storage account, I have to drill down into the VHD container in the right Blob to delete the associated .vhd and .status files.
Also, I have to do it in the right order, because there are dependencies between the various objects. If not, it fails, and I get a big fat pink error.
Also, the overview list does not refresh after the 'success' notification is posted, so I sit there guessing which of the resources I already deleted and which I didn't.
It all feels boring, not fun and tedious!
This is still coming. The work is being completed now and we will be able to expose it in a few months.

I need to start/stop VMs hundreds times a day. Is it okay to create a separate resource group for every new VM? Looks like deleting a resource group is time-consuming procedure
If a VM has a Static IP address assigned, and the VM is deleted without first removing it, how long before that IP address will be released for re-use?

Azure Portal team, a resource group for every VM is not a solution. Please provide an option to delete all associated objects related to the Virtual Machine as the default, which can be disabled if need be. More often than not I would guess people want to delete all objects associated, instead of having to go item by item

Cool, thanks for considering it!
