Roku Player: How to Turn Off

Many users of the Roku box have been asking how to turn the device off. They may be shocked to find that there is no way to actually shut the box off. It’s designed to not use very much power, so there is no power button or way in the software to shut it down. You can unplug it from the wall and that is really the only way to remove power from it.

    I really wish there were a power button. Sometimes I fall asleep after selecting “Play All” for example while on a multi-video Channel. When waking, I sometimes just turn off the tv, leaving the poor Roku streaming videos all night long to …. nothing.
