If I understand you right, you want to shutdown the computer while
installing LFS and resume the installation later?
There is a hint for this here:

It is kind of old, but the basics should still apply for newer versions of
the book. However, I have lost track of all the changes that were made in  
the
past months, so I would not entirely rely on the information.
