You can unplug them, or simply switch off the mains/power socket locally.

Most homeugs go into power saving (sleep) mode when not actually receiving or transmitting data.

Which brand are you using?

✔ Best Answer
There's no appreciable increased power consumption with powerline plugs --- turning them off at night is unnecessary. Once you have got them up and running after initial setup you should leave them on. Plus, turning them on/off every night may well shorten their life.

Some people are so paranoid about unplugging/switching off everything at night, I'm glad I'm not one of them.
