How do I turn my Portal off or turn off the display?

You can turn your Portal off by holding the power button and then selecting the Power Off button on your screen.

You can also make your Portal sleep, which turns the screen off, but allows your Portal to be woken up by touch, voice commands, motion detection or incoming calls. Your Portal will go to sleep automatically after 15 minutes without use, or you can make your Portal sleep manually.

To turn off your Portal display:

  1. Swipe up from the bottom of your Portal screen to view the Quick Controls.
  2. Tap the on-screen Power button.

On Portal+ you can also make your Portal sleep by pressing the power button on the back of your Portal.
