In Swedish we "släcker ett ljus" (we can "slå av" too), do you have something similar, like slekker for example?

Yes, you can say both "slukke lyset", "slå av lyset" and "skru av lyset".

you can't really say skru av lyset , this is more a demand in everyday situations

'slukker lyset' is not accepted, but I say it all the time.
