How to Turn Nook Completely Off

Some Nook users are a bit confused about the function of turning the device on or off. When you press the button on the top of the unit, it just puts the Nook into sleep mode. The screensaver is then displayed on the screen.

Although sleep mode allows you to quickly access the device when you need it, it still uses a bit of battery power. To turn the Nook completely off, press and hold the top button for about 5 seconds until the screen goes blank.

    I have a nook BNTV250.

    I can not figure out how to turn it off.

    I hope you can help me.

    Thank you!

    Ditto jon. They will cover the most intricate and rarely used or needed features in great detail, and not give the most simple and basic instructions – like how to turn the unit off. I can’t believe people get paid to write this stuff.
