I have just bought a TomTom 5200. When disconnected from the car or computer it goes into sleep mode, how do I switch off completely?

    Hi @Rick_P1

    You have the Unit set to go to sleep when power goes off in Settings.

    If you change that setting you will have to remember to turn it off when the ignition is turned off as it will stay fully ON and drain the battery quickly which is not good if it occurs repeatidly .

    If you leave setting as it is then Tap Cancel that is displayed for about 13 seconds before it goes to sleep when Ignition is turned off then Hold the ON/OFF button down for a couple of seconds and then select Turn Off
