Re: Can you hold down the power button
I supposed the phrase "Power button" is jargon, but most electrical devices have some way of turning the power on or off, be it a button, sensor or switch.
Thinking about this, literally the only power button in regular use in our house is on the TV remote.
Aside from light switches, everything else is always on (like printers or the router) or is initiated by some functional choice or setting (toaster, stove, kettle) but doesn't have an actual "power" button.
Actually powering down an appliance or other household unit either involves pulling the plug from the wall or slapping around on the backside looking a tiny, obscure button.
Unless there's NO button, and you unplug the power adaptor from the device.
