I figured out how to turn my PS4 controller off.

I figured it out. You just let the battery run out while your watching a movie, and wham, it turns off. Problem solved, no update needed. Just wanted to share.

 

P.S. You'll have about 3 seconds of battery life left to turn the system off before the next use.

You can also use the touchpad to spell with your finger the letters O-F-F to turn it off. Smiley Happy

Apperently Netflix added a stealth update to allow you to turn off the controller without pausing. Heard about it todaybut haven't tested it yet.

Or you could just...

 

Push PS button on your controller
Go to adjust devices
Select turn off device
Pick dualshock 4 and turn it off.

Or long press the ps button for what 10 secs? Or however long it takes to turn it off and but in the process hit circle then x to start it while you're still holding it and then it shuts off the controller still

This is the same way we've turned off PS3 controllers for the past seven years.  Why are so many people having such an issue with this?
