Yeah, not sure. But I bet your neighbor is wondering why his 360 keeps turning on.

Try using a different controller and see if the problem goes away. It may be a defective controller.

Hey I had the exact same problem?

All I did was examin my controll (Looked at the battery pack) and realised that it was a tiny bit loose?

I then sticky taped my battery pack down to the controll then it was working fine =DDD

I hope that this answer solves many peoples problems and that I become famous =D lol XD

Well all it pretty much is, is a LOOSE BATTERY PACK!!! I REPEAT!!! A LOOSE BATTERY PACK!!!

Now I can go back to enjoying Lost Odyssey =P ^.^

Oooooooooooooooooooor, it's just simply because your batteries are dead and you need new ones.

That or you're using rechargeable batteries and they aren't strong enough.

hey i had that problem to!! but instead of taping the battery pack i just wrapped some tape around the batterys. (keeps them from jostling around in there) it seems to work really well even if you get hit by a grenade in halo.

ok the last few days have been really weird with my xbox 360 wireless controller, i use the rechargable battery pack and have been using it since June 2008. Problem is, well I found THIS one out today, is that in Halo 3, when i shoot my guns, i feel no vibration with that, or in anything that causes vibration, i havn't tested it with my other games, but i have to keep disconnecting my battery pack to feel the vibration. and you know the green light that blinks on the button that can take you to the dashboard and stuff? the X button, not the BLUE X but the one in the middle of the controller, the green light is like flashing around that entire button for some reason. help??

It robs me of my batteries, Look I press the guide button and says I got 3 bars on the batteries but every few mintues it keeps turning of and I replaced the batteries and it works perfectly.

Had same problem -its from using cheaper batteries or from leaving batteries is for a very long time. If you take the battery pack out and remove the batteries and look down where the batteries go the metal conductors are most likely not working correctly due to build up of crap and need to be cleaned - I suggest a piece of fine sand paper attached to the end of a pencil to clean them. Once they are nice and shiny again, check the conductors have not been flattened too much and if need be bend them a little with the pencil so they are raised up a little more (not too much as they will break, as they will if this process is repeated too many times ans they will fatigue). Now your problem SHOULD be solved?

I'd say buy a new battery and see if that fixes the problem. They're only about $10 and that will, most likely, tell you if the problem is with the controller or the battery. If the battery is really old even when its fully charged it will only run your controller for a minute or two. But it could be some kind of connection problem as well. So try a new battery first. Also, if you know anyone else with a 360 try connecting the controller to their 360 and see if the same thing happens.
