I'm a complete newbie to Android mini pcs so please bear with me,

Just bought a "OEM Natural CX-919 Quad Core RK3188 Bluetooth Android 4.1.1 Mini Google PC TV Box 1G/8G BT/HDMI" which fits in to a spare HDMI TV slot.

The manual is pretty sparse but what I'm especially not sure about is, when I've finished, do I always shut it down using the "shutdown" button along the bottom of the home screen?

if so, how can I turn it back on again without unplugging it from the TV?

I'm using a wireless keyboard "Rii i8 2.4G Mini Wireless Keyboard", surely there is some sort of key press sequence that will start android back up?

Like I said sorry if daft questions but I can't find anything anywhere on how to do this!

many thanks in advance for any help

There's not a good way to shutdown and restart an Android mini pc that I've found. What helped for me was getting one of the many 'battery saver' apps that would put the device to sleep when it didn't detect any mouse/keyboard input. Then it's not using too much power and it is pretty fast to wake up and then you're ready to go.

Thanks for your reply, found one called "du battery saver" which appears to do it!

Also, would you happen to know of a web site that tells you the basic usage of Android on the desktop - I'm really struggling to do the fundamentals, so many obvious basic operations that I've been use to over the years on Macs and PCs that seem to have simply been ripped up left for you to guess how to do them. A good example, someone decided for some reason to not have an "exit" option in Android. Bizarrely you have to bring up the list of apps and drag each one to the top to unload - you'd never guess that in a millions years - I find the whole OS so un-intutitive it's unreal!

I have an S3 and that took some getting use to but this Android Desktop on the stick is even worse IMO!
