HyperV merging AVHDs

I have several hyperv snapshots. I would like to delete these to recover the drive space.  What if I delete a snapshot, then turn off the VM so the AVHD can merge, then I need to restart the VM before the merge has finished? IS that OK?
Thank you
J

No, you will have to wait for the merge to complete

I have since been experimenting and I can restart the vm, while the merge is in progress then repeat the process (shut down the VM) later and it will finish when given enough time.  It appears that everything is OK when I have done that.  I now have fewer AVHDs, but no more available space.  There are fewer AVHDs, but one has grown by the size of the removed AVHD, so no additional drive space.
