Switch off a Mender open-source Server


We are working on a project with Raspberry Pi, Yocto image and Mender open-source deployed on a Google Cloud VM, and we were wondering what would happen exactly if we switch off our server from time to time to save some unusefull resources (and money)? Our interval update polling is a day, but what will happen if we switch on the server only when we need it? Like for deployement or accepting new devices? Will the Mender Clients produce a lot of errors? Or will they continue to poll only once a day?
