PEPPER - Turning OFF

Created by Support Team, Modified on Fri, 4 Aug, 2023 at 8:05 AM by Jamal Tires

This article explains how to turn PEPPER OFF:

Regular TURN OFF:

  • Put a hand on its shoulder or its back, in order to keep it in position.

  • Press and hold the Chest Button until the robot says "GNUK GNUK" (~4 seconds).
Note: If the Autonomous Life is running, Pepper goes to its rest position.

  • The shutdown process is completed when all the LEDs are off.


Use this if Pepper does not turn OFF normally with the regular Turn OFF,

  • Make sure Pepper is in a safe position, or he may fall because the motors will switch OFF suddenly !
  • Press and hold the Chest Button for 8 seconds.


  • the robot says "GNUK GNUK",
  • the shoulder and ear LEDs fade quickly.
