Turn Off Button?

So I got my Oculus RIft S up and working now, but I want to know if there is a way to turn off the Oculus Rift S when I'm not using it.

    If it's like the original rift, you just take it off.  Mine is plugged in all the time, it doesn't turn on until the sensor is tripped inside the headset.

    I've got the same problem. Mine doesn't turn off unless I unplug from USB port. White LED stays lit constantly, even after closing out of oculus software.

    I think everyone's white light in headset stays lit that way, but when put aside it enters standby.

    I always just left CV1 plugged in without any issues but I seem to remember it being slightly warm. Can't feel any warmth coming from the S while in standby though so it'll stay plugged in like before.
