Can I uninstall Sharepoint from SBS2011?

I have no need for SharePoint on my SBS 2011 so how can I uninstall it so that it's not using resources?

Even if it were possible, it is highly inadvisable to remove any of the components the SBS server comes with. You risk an unstable system. If you don't need it, just don't use it, but don't disable it.

It IS possible to remove Sharepoint, but would you be better off just disabling it?

Disabling would be fine. I just want it to stop using resources for no reason.

You can stop all sharepoint services. ( In admin tools> services. They are labeled with "sharepoint")
You'll find some of the specific SBS functions will stop working.
Stop the services. but don't change their startup.and see what happens? If something goes wrong (and they will) just restart the server to start all necessary services.
Just a suggestion. Do a backup before you do?
Hope that helps,

I think the general opinion here is to leave them alone. Deleting them is not advised and disabling them may cause other issues. Best to leave them alone I think.

Chris Millard said "It IS possible to remove Sharepoint, but would you be better off just disabling it?"
So not conclusive. I'm happy to go either way but if someone else looked at this question could they get a definitive answer?

Yes. That you should never disable any SBS services. From what I gather from previous similar Questions, it would even be a breach of m$'s EULA for SBS server.
