On the download bar at the bottom, click on the dropdown arrow on the download and click on pause. Unfortunately, you cannot close Chrome and shutdown, so the best is to pause and sleep the computer.

Another way if the downloads bar is not showing cause you close the bar or the window that it is downloading, type "chrome://downloads/" in the address bar and you can pause the download from there.

Sleep is a power-saving state that allows a computer to quickly resume full-power operation (typically within several seconds) when you want to start working again. Putting your computer into the sleep state is like pausing a DVD player—the computer immediately stops what it’s doing and is ready to start again when you want to resume working.

Hibernation is a power-saving state designed primarily for laptops. While sleep puts your work and settings in memory and draws a small amount of power, hibernation puts your open documents and programs on your hard disk, and then turns off your computer. Of all the power-saving states in Windows, hibernation uses the least amount of power. On a laptop, use hibernation when you know that you won't use your laptop for an extended period and won't have an opportunity to charge the battery during that time.

Use a browser called Opera, it's twice as fast as Firefox, you'll notice the difference. What happens is it sends your request to a server in the Netherlands, a really, really, really fast server. It then compresses it, sends the contents back to your computer, and your computer unzips it to view the content. So therefore, you'll have an extremely fast Internet connection, even if your computer is slow.
