How to turn off the Ledger Nano X?

Switching off is only possible via the Control Center. To get there, you can hold down both buttons for 3 seconds at any time. Or you can navigate manually to the Control Center via the menu. There you can then choose the option “Power off”.

Ledger, why do so many Crypto Gurus recommend this not fit for purpose junk, oh yeah, they do so for the money, totally un Crypto….remember who they are !
This junk has so many issues with charging the battery, and turning off the device it is eye watering not to mention time consuming nonsense, its taking us back to dial up technology !
Ledger need to test before they throw it out to the market, i have totally lost any belief in this product, moving Crypto assets quickly with this clunky donkey powered device ? forget it , you could lose out on thousands of Monies while you spend an age sorting out their petty issues.
Support ! is a nonsense, there is no support !
Why are they even still permitted to sell this not fit for purpose clunky, slow problem riddled device.

I hate the company that makes this stuff, products are riddled with glitches and no one in customer support responds. Initially did not have a major issue turning it off, suddenly now it’s unresponsive.

Nowhere I’ve seen is it said that you have to hold the buttons down for several seconds to power off. If you don’t, the wallet displays “LEDGER” and goes to the Enter PIN dialog. It’s okay now that I (finally) know this, but it should be in the instructions and I don’t see why it should be necessary to hold the buttons since the displayed power-off function is quite clear and it takes work to get there.

I got to “Power off” with some difficulty, but when I then pressed the two buttons it didn’t turn off, at least not immediately. It’s turned off now but I don’t know how. Pressing the two buttons with “power off” showing didn’t seem to do it.
