Default How to force Fluent to stop mid-iteration

I'm currently running a simulation and I'm up around the 50000 iteration mark. I've been canceling the iteration process every 5000 iterations or so (using the iterate panel) to write the data (because I don't trust my computer). BUT, I just accidentally closed the iterate panel and now I can't seem to stop the iteration process to write my data. I can't select any of the options from the Fluent menu as they seem to be disabled whilst the iteration process is running.

How do I stop the iteration to save my work?!?! Thanks in advance!
