How Do I Turn Off My Apple TV?

How do you turn off an Apple TV?  Sounds like a problem that you shouldn’t have to Google.  But…I did.  And if you’re reading this, then you probably did too.

Since the Apple TV doesn’t have a power button, the solution, though simple, is not as intuitive as you might assume.

So, how do you do it?

  1. With the Apple TV on, press and hold the Menu button on your remote until you are at the home screen.
  2. Press and hold the Play button until the Apple TV turns off.

Not complicated, but not intuitive.
