Control Center on Apple TV in tvOS 13

Control Center in tvOS 13 is how you switch user profiles, put your Apple TV to sleep

Starting with tvOS 13, coming this fall, your Apple TV will gain a Control Center of its own. Like the Control Center on iPhone and iPad, Control Center on Apple TV offers easy access to various control and capabilities on your device. For instance, it's how you will put your Apple TV to sleep after the launch of tvOS 13. You can also view currently playing music tracks or videos, though you can't use Control Center to jump to content.

Control Center is also used, importantly, for tvOS 13's most important feature: user switching. Using Control Center, it's just a swipe and a click, and you can change profiles on your Apple TV, bringing up your personalized content and recommendations, rather than those of your other housemates or family members.
