Question about turning off

#1Matthewm1988Posted 3/24/2014 9:19:01 AM
Just bought an xbox so I'm not overly familiar with it yet, but when I say "Xbox turn off" and it does, I can still hear the xbox make noises as if it's on. The power button goes off though.

Does the xbox consistently run? Or is there a way to make it stop completely?

Thanks all

By default I believe it's in low power mode, which is "instant on" so it'll respond to voice commands even when it's "off".

You can turn that off by going into your settings and changing it from instant on. I believe it's in the power/start up section of settings.

I have found, for me at least, overall my xbox runs better if i keep mine in power saving mode. Sure you lose like 20ish seconds of boot up time, and the ability to say "xbox on," but overall i think it is worth it to just keep it in power saving mode. From what i have seen, although i could be wrong, in instant on mode the xbox does a terrible job of clearing out the cache and the UI becomes a little less responsive.

What would you recommend? Low power or just turn it off completely?

Also, lol where is settings? I can't find it

I keep mine in low power/instant on, just because.

And to reach settings, just say "xbox go to settings", and it should instantly take you there if you wanted to mess around with stuff.

Got it fixed. Mines in energy save mode.

I love the option to be lazy, but I don't want it always running hehe.

How do you clear cache for future reference?

If you ever run into real problems with apps running/errors just hold down the power button, while the xbox is on, for like 10 seconds or so and it will clear it. Plus i treat mine like a PC and close every app when i am done with it instead of leaving it running in the background.

Last question but how do you close apps? Thanks a lot
