Fully turn off Raspberry Pi from Kodi power button - only goes into standby(?)
#1
Hi All.
Firstly, LOVE Kodi, awesome job!
Along with my Raspberry Pi, it is my go-to media player for a dumb TV while in bed.
However...
When I click the power icon and select shut down,  it doesn't seem to fully shut off the Raspberry Pi. 
The power indicator is still lit,  and any attached peripherals (I use a USB SSD) are still running.
Right now I have to go to the Pi and physically switch it off (sometimes I forget)

Is there a workaround for this to make it shut down completely? 
If I knew the structure of the Pi better,  I'd try to locate the file(s) and make changes, but I only have a basic Linux knowledge.
Thanks a lot

Raspberry Pi 4b 4gb - if that's relevant

Probably not, but it may depend on the operating system. Which O/S are you using?

This is normal. Some cases (Argon One) have their own power switch.

The power usage in this situation is negligible, so I wouldn't worry about it. Personally, I leave all my Pi's switched on all the time.

It's not so much the Pi, I know it can take it,  just peripheral usage especially USB HD which I have plugged in sometimes

If you go over to the Pi hut they sell a lead with switch that goes between the power supply and the Pi. The only other way to switch off the Pi is to unplug it.
