How do I turn off PS3 slim?

21 replies 15256 views Edited Jan 31, 2010
Simple question really.  The manual only shows how to put it in standby (the red dot still on).  There is no off switch on the back like the older model so I don't know if it is just supposed to always stay in standby or if there is a way to turn it completely off.

You should leave the Slim in standby. It consumes next to no power, and prevents wearing down the internal backup battery that keeps your settings during a power outage. Check the user's guide for more detail on taking care of your new Slim.

But as the first response said. Can't say it any simplier.

Okay so when you plug a PS3 Slim into the wall it automatically goes into Stand-by mode since there isn't a power switch? No power switch, thats interesting. Well if that's the case then your only solution to "turn off" your system would be to unplug it, but since apparently the system was built to stay in stand-by mode then you shouldn't mess with it.

I never knew PS3 Slims didn't have a power switch.  I learned something new tonight. My PS3 has a power switch and I never turn it off.

Google 

On/Off Power Switch for PS3 Slim

You should easily find a 3rd party power switch for a few bucks.

You just plug it in the power port and have your power cable plugged trough the switch.

Easy as that, can't see why it wouldn't work.

Why would you want to shut off power totally to your PS3? There's no benefit.
