You're a DBA 2.0? Not a problem. Database can only be switched between archivelog and noarchivelog when it's mounted and not open. Also, it must be shut down cleanly. So, at approximately 10:30 AM, do the following:

sqlplus "/ as sysdba"
shutdown immediate
startup mount
alter database archivelog;
alter database open;

Being just an old DBA 1.0 hack, I dunno how to do that in EM.
