a.From the menu bar, click on Athena -> Athena Unit Maintenance. This will open the Athena Maintenance window.

b.Click the "Select All" button. This will select all of your EST Units.

c.Click the "Shutdown" button. This will send a signal to each of the EST Units to begin the shut down sequence. This process is purposefully delayed 60s and can take up to 2 minutes to complete.
