    Can't you turn it off by using the button on it?

    How do you usually turn it off with the controller. Like do you hold down the PS button and do it through the window that pops up? Or do you slide through the tabs to the left and turn it off that way?

    I think if you just hold your finger on the Power button on the front of the PS3 for a few seconds, it should shut off that way.

    I don't suggest pulling the power cord without properly shutting down the ps3 since it'll most likely mess up the hard drive or something else inside the ps3..

    Yeah don't ever pull the power cord out, last time I had to do that I lost all my data and had to format my PS3.

    Like xMusiicAddictx said you have 3 ways of turning it off, try using one of them.
