I can't shut off my new Fios modem/router???

Verizon just updated me from copper to fiber optic (which I really didn't want to do, but that is another story) and the new Fios Quantum Gateway modem/router doesn't appear to have any form of power switch.  Also, the WiFi signal is always on.

 

With my DSL modem, I could power it off, and also shut off the WiFi, which made me feel a bit more secure.  I also didn't have to worry about keeping it cool when the computer was off (I have a USB-powered fan over it to keep it cool).

 

Am I correct in saying this new device can't be powered down?  Can I somehow disconnect via Windows or something.  I haven't messed around with settings yet as I don't want to totally goof things up.

 

I miss my POWER button and ability to shut off WiFi.........................  😞

No there is no switch. Just take the plug out of the back.
