Sorry - that is "Shabbat Shabbaton"

Lev. 23:32

Also, Yom Kippur is "Shabbat Shabbatot" - THE Sabbath of Sabbaths - 
and does not need to fall on the seventh day of the week.

And it's character and purpose is to atone for all our sins - 
prohibition of work is reiterating that no work (worship) is to be 
done, no need to supplicate as in Temple service, just like on the 
weekly Shabbat.
