Can I reboot my Roku stick without unplugging it from the TV?

I just hired someone to install my television on the wall and now I am unable to get to my Roku stick if I need to reboot it. Will my Roku reboot if I disconnect the power source from the wall alone or do I need to disconnect the stick from the television as well? Historically, I need to unplug the stick from my television and plug it back in every couple of months. Roku Streaming Stick + (3810, 3811 series)

It should, but you might have to leave it unplugged for a minute or so to be sure the power has drained off sufficiently.  If it's responding to the remote then you can just do a "System restart" from the Settings menu.  I don't recall exactly where it is, but it shouldn't be hard to find.

Settings > System > System restart
