Power Down is the thirty-third track from Dream Theater's thirteenth studio album, The Astonishing.


This song is instrumental, and consists only of the music made by the NOMACS, similar to Descent of the NOMACSThe Hovering SojournDigital Discord, and Machine Chatter.

This track spells the end for the NOMACS. Lord Nafaryus, who is grateful for Gabriel bringing Faythe back to life, agrees to shut down the NOMACS for good.
