Have you been neglecting your 360 and playing the Wii? It wants you to play it!

Are you downloading something? Have something qued in the downloads?
Are you charging your controller?

Both of these will make the xbox stay on...

Return the faulty piece of garbage to Microsoft before something really bad goes wrong.

RETURN IT!But before you do call Microsoft tech department or talk to the Geeks at Best Buy. Both have free advice.

Well then you controller won't charge, its USB which means it requires the 360 to be powered on before any charge goes to the battery pack.

It's already answerd, the play and charce kit is the problem. It keeps using power till it's charced and it's godo to see that somebody finally has a problem that isn't actually a problem. Just somebody that didn't read his/her manual.

Turn off the background downloads, that lets you download after your 360 is off.

Not so. I have an external fan that I plug into the USB drive if I'm playing for more than about an hour and a half, and I leave it in after I turn the console off. The fan keeps going and the console is off. My friend charges his iPod in there when it's off too.

my xbox didnt work like it did for 3 years! now im grounded for months at a time. and then it got rrod. those guys are right, she has feelings
#28 Posted by Scorch27 (15 posts) -
huh... yours won't turn off, mine won't turn on...

Mine does the same thing. Unplug the charger to your controller.
#30 Posted by DecadesOfGaming (3090 posts) -

thats funny... your 360 is just letting you know that it's ready when you are, or it's possessed ! you may need to find out what happened to the original owner !! You may need to find an Exorcist to fix it.. it's quicker than phoning xbox support !

My xbox one just took 40 minutes to shut off. It also freezes up when I select an app and I have no choice but to unplug it. Audio adapter doesn't work half the time, have to unplug and restart it to get adapter to connect properly. As im smashing this reply out my x1 finally shut off after 40 minutes
