We discuss a solution of the optimal stopping problem for the case when a reward function is a power function of a process with independent stationary increments (random walks or Levy processes) on an infinite time interval. It is shown that an optimal stopping time is the first crossing time through a level defined as the largest root of the Appell function associated with the maximum of the underlying process.
