When it’s time to call it a day on your gaming session, you might be wondering how to properly turn off your PS4. Luckily, there are two simple methods to do so. In this post, we will go through both ways to turn off your PS4.
Method 1: Using Your Controller
The first method involves using your controller. Start by opening up your home screen. You don’t have to log in right away. Then, press and hold the PS4 button on your controller. A menu will appear with three options: rest mode, turn off the PS4 completely, and restart the PS4. To turn off your PS4, select “turn off PS4.” The screen will prompt you to close all applications before turning off the console. Press “X” to confirm. Your PS4 will now shut off.
Method 2: Using the Power Button on Your Console
The second method is to physically press and hold the power button on your PS4 console. For PS4 Pro, the power button is located on the front of the console. Press and hold the power button down for seven seconds. Your PS4 will automatically shut off.
In conclusion, turning off your PS4 is a simple process. You can use your controller to select “turn off PS4” from the menu, or you can press and hold the power button on your console. Either way, make sure you properly shut down your PS4 before unplugging the AC power cord to avoid any data loss or damage.
