Shutting down the router

I bought some cisco 2500 series router,I am so new to these goodies.I just wonder if there is a special way to shutdown it.I just directly use the power button/switch on the router? Can it damage it? What is the best way to shut it down?

    As long as you saved your config then flipping the switch is just fine. Just wait until the write is complete.

    For a cisco switch you have to pull the plug, as there is not power button. I put a switch on all of my outlets that power switches, so I can flip the switch at the plug.

    thank you for your answer.I didn't change any configuration,I just wanted to check if they work or not.I just wrote the only command I know "show version" to see the IOS and ram on them.

    one more question;

    I've 4 routers and 1 switch.They are all on eachother.I saw that the fan is under the router,can it be problem,do I have to put something between the routers?
