“Sleep” mode

You can put your Portal TV in “sleep” mode, which turns the display off, but allows your Portal TV to be woken up by voice commands, using the remote or receiving an incoming call. When your Portal TV is in sleep mode, it is still connected to Wi-Fi and its sensors are still active.

You can also learn how to turn the camera and microphone off on your Portal TV.
