I'm starting to work whit Instant Clones and I have an issues with VM that have ben used. They are not automatically cancelled and are left powered on with status "already used". Is this the  expected behaviour?

Yes this is expected behavior to protect the content of the VM.  This is not specific to instant clones.  see this KB https://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=10005...https://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/viewdocument.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=1000590

setting pae-DirtyVMPolicy=2 should help you.
