Automating #Azure VM stop and start

This is an old topic, but at the same time a big ask for Azure IaaS deployments. It would be great to be able to start and stop Virtual Machines based on a weekly schedule, and let’s add the option to run a specific script before shutdown or after startup.
I just published an automation based on the work of Paulo Marques that extends his solution and get rid of Powershell Workflow in favor of plain Powershell.
The solution is currently used in production, but still misses some good documentation and code polishing. If you’re interested you’re welcome :-).
Here is the github repo.
