This system is always ON

You cant to a real reset until you unplug the power source. I was having problems with FIFA and BF4 but turning it "off" just makes the system on standby. So if you unplug it and plug it back in again will make the system do a real restart. The more you know.

The NSA is watching. When I game on Xbox one, I be sure to do so naked, that way they'll stop watching me.

Hold the power button for around 15 seconds to power it completely off.

Actually, that's because under Settings you have your power option is set to "Instant On". This makes it so that when you turn off the console via the button or controller, it goes into a standby mode.

If you want to not do this and fully turn it off, just switch it to "Energy Saving". This has the same effect when you turn it off to unplugging it or hard resetting it.

I personally like keeping mine in standby mode since a lot of single player games let you pick up exactly where you paused it before shutting down. Also, keeping it in standby lets it download games and updates in the background while I'm at work.

Or HOLD the power button. That shuts it off completely.

So if it's completely "off," can I still say Xbox On or is it still off.

"Xbox On" will only pull the machine out of standby. If it's off, it'll only work if you yell really loud.
