Power down ADC

I've created a project that sets up the ADC16 to read a value 4 times a second triggered by a lptmr interrupt.  I go into VLPS mode once I've done my processing for each ¼ second interval and wait for the next lptmr interrup to occur but my power drwa is still way higher than I expected and I think a big part of that is becuase the ADC is still enabled.

 

I'd like to power down the ADC when I have done with it but then power it back up each ¼ second to take my reading.  Is there a simple way to achieve this that does not involve going through all the initialization and calibration routines?
