If I’m a property manager and was given an apartment plus utilities, how much time am I allowed to vacate since I have given my notice?

And can they cut my power off the next day?

It appears that in your state, they may give you 14-days notice to leave in this situation; if you do not, they can file an eviction action in court and will likely get a court date approximately two weeks later. After the court date, you could be evicted in just a few more days, with the exact amount of time depending on whether there are holidays or weekends in the way.
