Sphero Mini has two different power modes, Power Off and Standby. Depending on which one of these power modes your Mini is in, you'll have to turn it on differently... 

  • Standby -- if you simply closed the app and let Sphero Mini idly sit until the lights turned off, it's in standby mode. To wake, simply launch the Sphero Mini application next to your robot. 
  • Power Off -- if you navigated to the setting page of the Sphero Mini app and selected "Power Off", your Mini is powered off. To wake from Power Off, plug your Mini in, wait for the LED light to turn on, and then launch the application. 

Have you checked out "Shake to Wake"? Off by default, "Shake to Wake" can be found in settings and turned on. Once toggled on, Mini can be woken up from Standby by a simple shake or tap. Keep in mind, if Mini is powered off, you will still need to plug it in to wake. 

Sphero Mini not turning on? Try plugging it in and letting it fully charge. Once fully charged, Mini LED will turn solid green and will be ready for action!
