What do you mean by deactivate? Do you mean make it so members can't post and sign up or you want the forum hidden?

Please don't use bold or color and keep to the default text. This is reserved for the staff for moderation. Thank you.
Please read our forum rules: ESF General Rules

What you can do is put your forum on vacation and deactivate user new registration. This will prevent anyone but admins from posting on it.

To turn new guest registration off: ACP(Admin Control Panel) > Users and Groups > Users > Users options > Members > Allow new members: No and save.

To put forum on holiday mode:
ACP(Admin Control Panel) > General > Forum > Configuration > General > Forum on holiday: Yes and save.
