When using the Progressive Refine render option, how do I actually stop a render prematurely and save it? I understand that is one of the benefits as I've read here and elsewhere, but I can't seem to find an answer or figure that aspect of it out.

To stop a render in process, be it progressive or not simply press Esc.

You can also click the x next to the progress bar in the Info header to do the same thing. enter image description here

To save the image, press F3 with your mouse in the UV/Image Editor window with the Render Result or output from the compositor Viewer Node displayed.
