Keep “Turned On” Routines from Turning My Lights “On”

So I just purchased the Philips Hue light with the bridge. I noticed they had a feature on their app to customize routines. I assume this lets you choose what colors you want your lights to be at certain times of the day. So I had all my routines set up, like “Evening” and “DayTime” and such. But here is my issue, if I have my routines on, then go to turn my light off, the routine will turn it back on. I just thought routines affected the color of the bulb (regardless of if lwe its “on” or “off”. I didn’t know it would turn the lights on. So I guess what I’m asking is if there is a way to have the routine still “on”, but not have it turn the lights on. I only wanted routines activated for color purposes mainly, that way the lights were a specific color at a certain time of day. To help out, my current set up is one smart bulb, and one bridge. The light bulb is in my bedroom in a table lamp, and the only app I have is the “Philips Hue” app.
