You can tell NM to go to sleep, at which point it will bring down and
release all interfaces.  Use something like:

dbus-send --dest=org.freedesktop.NetworkManager /org/freedesktop/NetworkManager org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.sleep

and when you're done:

dbus-send --dest=org.freedesktop.NetworkManager /org/freedesktop/NetworkManager org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.wake
