Suggested method for taking Clone offline

I have a need to take a Clone offline during the night time hours. I noticed last time I did it the GUI in SSMS acted strange. So I ran a TSQL and it worked ok.

I just wanted to check if there is a method preferred.

    Running T-SQL to take the clone database offline is fine, but Clone Agents run a monitoring service which tries to ensure that clones are online, which sounds like it might conflict with what you want to do. To check, you need to have the clone database offline in SQL Server but the machine hosting the clone online?

    I'm not sure what the OP is asking for, or did, either. Offline as in detach the database?
