Dear Customer, Thanks for reaching out to AWS re:Post.

When RDS instance is stopped a "hidden" snapshot is taken by RDS (even when the snapshot option is not ticked by customer) - this is by design. That is usually the reason for the delay.

But to gain more perspective on your RDS instance, a support case with Premium Support would help.
