Turning your Amazon Kindle on and off is as easy as finding the power button—except the location of that button has varied from model to model over the generations. Our handy guide will help you, and we’ve included photos of a variety of models, working our way from the latest down to some older vintages. 

How to turn your Kindle on or off

The process to turn your Amazon Kindle on or off is the same regardless of the model or generation. Depress or flick the button, and hold it for one second. Then, let it go. If your Kindle was powered off, its display will now power on.

Not sure of where your Kindle’s power button is located? This comprehensive list, organized by model and moving from the latest to the older generations, will help you track it down.
