Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble, but I'll do my best to help you. Please give me a few moments to review your details here.

There is no on/off button for a firestick. It powers on and off automatically in unison with the tv.

There is no need to turn it off when not in use, and its power usage is extremely low. There is no harm in it being on when not being directly used.

When you are done using the firestick if you want to watch something else you just press the input/source button on your tv remote to change back over to cable/satellite/dvd/etc as needed.
