I forgot...

I know i asked this before, but how do you say "i turned the computer off" now (as opposed to before)?

Mi pini e ilo nanpa. How was it before (btw, before what?)?
Maybe 'mi Kama pini e ilo nanpa' to be real safe.

Before I asked again.
btw, mi moli e ilo sona (in Tagalog, "to kill" also means "to switch off").

I wondered about the signature. Thanks.
But in tp, 'moli' seems a little strng for just turning off; it suggests not being able to turn on again (but we have the same idiom in English and no one objects). 'pini' is technically OK, but 'lape' is probably the best colloquially.
