Should the power brick be on all the time?

Coming from the 360, it was green when active and amber when it was turned off.

I woke up this morning after a little session with Forza to notice the brick was still on with a white lite versus amber.

I remember turning off the console with the controller. Just went to the system itself and turned it on/off and the brick is still white.

Should I be concerned?

I'm wondering this myself. When I first plugged everything in, but before I turned the console on, the power brick light was orange, like the 360's power brick in standby. But it's been white ever since I turned the console on the first time, even when I turn the console off.

Mine is white as well,i think is because this console isnt never really off,when i installed ryse i shut it off and it continue installing,the same when i download games,it continues to download them,even when off,and the hdmi input appears even when off just without a signal

Im not using the kinect,but i guess if you are it has to be in stand by all the time,to hear your commands,so thats my 2 cents

As far as I know if it's on instant on and the console is off it shows white as it is in a ready state.

If you switch the console off completely then the brick goes off

Yes thats it,my console has two options,the instant on,and the save energy mode wich i guess it shuts it off completely

if you choose the instant on it will be white if you choose the power save mode it will be amber.

They call it instant on and power save?

Why not standby and power off?
