How to turn off PS4 controller from PC?

This question details how to turn off the PS4 controller by going into the menu on the PS4.

I am using Ds4Windows so that I can use the PS4 controller to play games on my PC. However I am unsure how to turn off the controller when I am done playing.


Holding the PS button for 10 seconds will turn the controller off, regardless of what it is paired to (PC or PS4), according to this post.

If you want to turn it off from DS4, though, I believe there is a button in the UI to disconnect/turn off the controller.

You can also check the DS4Windows setting “Disconnect from BT when Stopping”, which will immediately disconnect the controller from the OS and turn it off when you press stop. When you want to start DS4Windows again, just press the PS button and it will power up and connect to the paired system.
