After using the machine for the day it is recommended that the machine is shut down in the following sequence:
- When you are done operating the machine, click on the power button symbol in the upper right corner of the screen this shuts down the machine, but also safely shuts down the Beaglebone Board (computer inside the machine). A pop-up asks you if you would like to completely shut down the machine.
- Shut off the power button on the Pocket NC and unplug the machine from the computer.
- The computer may generate an error message warning you to eject the BeagleBone before unplugging it. You may eject the BeagleBone device from the computer if desired, but it is not necessary.
- Turn off the machine, unplug the USB and the power cord when not in use.
