I have the Limited edition GoW3 slim and when I turn it off the center light of the power button on the system pulses over and over for a few minutes, its very slow, like one pulse every 5-7 seconds. Does anyone know what this means?

Do you have your controller charging? Or maybe you didn't finish downloading something..

Xbox will either finish charging the controller or downloading the item then turn off.

It's pretty much one of the best and most necessary fixes ever.

When Cloud gamesaves first started, the save would often not sync up to the cloud if you turned off your Xbox right away, without actually checking your active downloads to see if the cloud was syncing. So next time you loaded a game, it would often not be able to load the most current save and you'd have to cross your fingers while you selected either using the cloud save or using the cloud save that was physically saved to your 360.

One way to fix that would be to turn on the xbox that you were last using, let it finish the cloud download. But that's dumb. You'd have to call your friend and say "umm... can you just turn on your xbox for a few mintues? I need to get my cloud saves synced."
