Default Yeast stopped...now what?

So now, I've taken the FG and I can see that the yeast has stopped. So do I now leave the beer in the primary for another couple of weeks? It's only been in there one week thus far...thanks.

Yes. Leave it alone for another couple weeks. It will help give you the best results.

Personally, I would leave it in the fermenter 4 weeks total.
