How do you power off (not restart) the Roku Sound Bar?

How do you power off (not restart) the Roku Sound Bar? I have gone to Settings, but there is no option to power off like my other Roku devices

You don't, the only roku ever to have a power command that wasn't a roku tv, is the roku 4.  Just leave it on, it goes to sleep on its own.

I haven’t found an option to turn it off, however, there is an option to restart it. Easy enough: settings>system>system restart

 it’s helped with the occasional connection issue. good luck!

If you want it off because the lights on the front bother you can turn off the front panel lights:

 

settings> system> advanced system settings> Led> off

"Leave it on"?

I thought we were trying to save energy here, not waste it.  Why would you then have something which cannot be turned off?

I want it off because it continues to use power when I am not using it and, it appears to use internet bandwidth -- ie, for whatever reason, it is not going to sleep -- maybe it cannot tell that the TV is off?

Without an option to power it off separate, I will have to put it on a powerstrip and turn it off that way ... not ideal.

Let's see TiVo doesn't have power command, neither does apple tv or fire tv sticks, and so Roku doesn't have one either. Many sources don't.
