Lab: I am running 15.1 on a catalyst and need to disable redundant supervisormp

Last updated on December 25, 2018

        I am trying to find a way to disable the redundant supervisor mode in my switch, as it is disabling another line card, so it can have enough power to spare for a redundant slot I wont use. 
I have tried searching around and haven't found a way to do so. Sup720 1x 6509 chassis, no redundant is installed, but the IOS keeps holding power for a slot I won't be using.
after doing show power

5    WS-SUP720-3B        282.24  6.72   282.24  6.72  on    on
6    (Redundant Sup)       -     -      282.24  6.72  -     -
8    WS-X6148-GE-TX      103.74  2.47   103.74  2.47  on    on
9    WS-X6748-GE-TX      407.40  9.70     -     -     on    off (FRU-power denied)
system power total =     1153.32 Watts (27.46 Amps @ 42V)
system power used =       832.86 Watts (19.83 Amps @ 42V)
system power available =  320.46 Watts ( 7.63 Amps @ 42V)
Update: The simple solution was since the x6748 can go in any slot I put it in the slot6 so that it could use the already reserved power as part of its own.
