    When creating a development or test environment there really needs to be an option to stop the compute resources on Gateway machines, if you're only going to be using them for a few hours while you test something out. For example, I'm doing some Azure training over the course of a month, so the Gateways are always online regardless of whether or not I'm in a class. While not a lot, based on current consumption I will have used probably £30 of the £95 credit available under a Visual Studio Enterprise with MSDN (MPN) subscription. With regular virtual machines they'll be consuming while I'm actively learning and then they will be shutdown. Therefore my consumption will be in line with actual use. It would be nice to have gateways follow a similar model.
