Off = (1) from a particular thing, place, or position: ‘They drove off’. (2) at a distance in space or time: ‘The party is still two weeks off.’ (3) not in operation or operational: ‘The lights are off.’

Turn off/on (or switch off/on) a light, television, electric kettle etc.: ‘Let’s turn on the radio and listen to the news.’

Off + sb/sth (WITHOUT of): ‘I wish he’d wipe that silly smile off his face.’
