What is the difference between Shutdown and Stop Sensor?

The Shutdown option powers down the Receiver and acts as an “On” or “Off” button. The shutdown option temporarily turns off all communication between your transmitter and receiver during a sensor session. You will not get sensor glucose readings and it will not extend the life of your sensor. If you use Shutdown you can turn your receiver back on by holding down the center (or select) button. It is important to give the receiver 5-10 minutes for it to display a reading after it turns back on.

This option only shows when you are in the middle of a sensor session. The Stop Sensor option ends a sensor session and will show a red stoplight symbol in the upper right corner of the trend graph. You will not get sensor glucose readings, and you must dispose of your sensor if you stop the session..
