How do you turn off Sonos speakers when not in use
My wife is bothered by the light and the ongoing power drain. Is there a way to turn it off except by unplugging?

A few folks posting here have tried that and with a single Sonos device it isn't too frustrating except for the long boot time that you have to wait through. With multiple Sonos devices you really need to power them on in sequence, about a minute apart to keep the system happy. Sonos will recover from a power failure where they all come up at once but it may take a while as things sort themselves out inside the Sonos mesh.
Moderator Note: To add to the above, if you are wondering how to turn off your Sonos speakers, please be advised that our products are not intended to be switched off. Rather, they are intended to be left on "Standby". To switch a device off completely, you can simply remove it from power altogether.
