Can computer be shut down during encryption / decryption process

Hello,

I would like to know if a computer can be shut down during encryption / decryption process. If the machine is shut down at say 50% disk encryption does the encryption safely resume from the same point once the machine is powered back up. Similarly if the machine was decrypting and a shut down occurred during this process would it safely resume?

Appreciate any responses on this topic.

Many Thanks,

Chris
