Turn off Apple TV completely

A question we regularly get is: Can you turn off the Apple TV? The answer is actually short, no. Unfortunately, it is not possible to turn off the Apple TV completely.

But that is not really necessary, when you place the Apple TV in sleep mode (standby) it consumes little power and you can still use some advantages. For example, the Apple TV always sends out an Airplay signal, which you can use and connect at any time. You can, however, manually put the Apple TV to sleep.

Put Apple TV to sleep

Take the Apple TV 4 remote control with Touchpad to hand and press the button with the TV icon for about 4-5 seconds. Then choose the option ‘Slumber’.

Now the Apple TV will go into sleep (standby) mode and the connected devices will be turned off if possible. If the above method does not produce the desired effect, you can also switch off the Apple TV via the Settings menu via Settings ▸ Sleep now. You can also apply these steps to an older generation Apple TV.
