Control 24 heat- turn off pres?

Does anyone know if it'd be possible to turn off the 16 mic pres in my Control 24 while mixing? This sucker kicks off a ton of heat, and I'm assuming that the class A pres are a major contributor. I'm wondering if I could wire up some type of switch for just the pres. Any thoughts?

I don't know if that would reduce the heat that much but you would need a 4PDT switch or two 2PDT switches as they are on two PCB's. (8 channels on each) Just wire the +/- 15 Volts from the PSU to the Mic Pre PCB's through the switch(s) so you can shut off the power to them.

Make sure your monitors are turned down when you turn your Pre's on then!
