Turn off the PS4 when it’s in standby mode?

Is there a way to make the PS4 safely power down completely while it’s in standby? I know I can turn it on and then turn it off, but it’s a waste of time. Id like to be able to power it off without needing to turn my TV on.

If you press the power button for several seconds it should beep a few times and then safely shut down. If this doesn’t work press power once until the system turns on then hold power for several seconds until it powers down

Making the system power down completely while in standy will cause any game that is running to close down. You will loose unsaved progress so be careful.
