Hi @cbholloway59, welcome to Trend Micro Community! 

For your question, if you click quit on the Trend Micro icon on Dock (menu bar on the bottom), your Antivirus for Mac is still running. 

If you want to disable your Antivirus for Mac  temporarily, here are the steps for your reference: 
  1. Click the Trend Micro icon located on your Mac menu bar.
  2. Click Shut Down Trend Micro Antivirus.shut down internet security

  3. Wait for the Trend Micro icon to disappear. The Trend Micro program should be disabled once the icon disappear.

Don't forget to enable your Antivirus for Mac after the confirmation.

Please let us know if your question is answered. Thank you!
