how do I turn this **bleep** thing off so it doesn't come back on by itself when I'm not home!

I absolutely hate my Nest thermostat. It's unintuitive to use and apparently cannot be set so it doesn't turn itself back on randomly. I work irregular hours and sometimes have to go out of town for a week or more on a job. I'd really like to leave my windows open when I go and turn off the AC, but apparently that's not an option.

This article explains the Modes available on the Nest, one of which is OFF.  If you scroll down to the 2nd topic, "Switch to Heat, Cool, Heat • Cool, or Off mode," it tells you how to turn to OFF mode (depending on which model you have).
