How to Turn off a PS5 Controller When Paired …

The PlayStation 5 (PS5) controller automatically turns off when it’s not in use to conserve battery life. However, if you want to manually turn off a paired PS5 controller, you can do so using the following method:

1. On the PS5 Home Screen: If you are on the PS5 home screen or in a game, you can turn off the paired controller using the following steps:

  1. Press and hold the “PS” button in the center of the controller for about 10 seconds.
  2. A Quick Menu will appear on the screen.
  3. In the Quick Menu, scroll down to the “Power” icon.
  4. In the “Power” options, select “Turn Off Controller.”
  5. The controller will now turn off.

2. In a Game or App: If you are currently playing a game or using an app on the PS5, you can still turn off the controller by following these steps:

  1. Press the “PS” button in the center of the controller to open the Control Center overlay.
  2. In the Control Center overlay, navigate to the “Power” icon.
  3. Select “Turn Off Controller.”
  4. The controller will now turn off.

Please note that if your PS5 controller is connected to a device other than the PS5, such as a PC or a mobile device, the methods mentioned above may not work. In such cases, you may need to manually disconnect the controller from the device or turn off the device it’s connected to.

As technology and software updates are continuously released, the methods for interacting with the PS5 and its controllers may evolve. For the most up-to-date information and specific instructions related to your PS5 controller, it’s best to refer to the official PlayStation support documentation or visit the PlayStation support website.
