I'm looking for the words to express 'Switch to stand-by' and 'Switch off' (i.e. power completely off) in French?

Here is a translation:

“Switch to stand-by” can be said with « Mettre en veille »

“Switch off” can be said with « Éteindre »

    If talking about big machinery, switch off can also be translated to mettre hors tension. – Alexis Pigeon Jun 15 '12 at 12:18
  • Yes, we're talking about big machines here - not TVs etc. – paul Jun 18 '12 at 5:10
  • Switch off: éteindre, couper, arrêter. – mins Jan 29 '14 at 0:11
