PowerController TurnOff directive: error type when it's already off

Hi,

What's the appropriate response to TurnOff directive if the device is already off? When I respond with NOT_IN_OPERATION response, users gets "I'm not quite sure what went wrong.", which is not how this error type is normally interpreted by Alexa. Is that intended behavior?

just reply like if you are changing the status of the device no need to return errors.
