    Is it fine if I unplugged my console while it was set to Instant On?


    I turned off my Xbox One when it was set to Instant On and then unplugged it. Not sure but is it totally fine? Are you supposed to set the console to Energy-saving mode before unplugging it?

    :)

    Xbox One going into "energy saving" mode sometimes, even when I have "instant on" selected

    This has happened several times lately. I have my console set for "instant on". However, occasionally, when I turn it off, the Xbox logo will pulse for a while. I know this is because it may be communicating with Live for some stuff. However, it
    seems like when this happens, and the Xbox finally shuts down, it powers down completely, and does not stay in "instant on". Just curious if this may be normal. The console seems to be working fine in all other departments.

  3. Power brick goes orange when Xbox One is off?

    Hi TheMadGamerMan

    What setting is your console set to instant on or energy saver? If set to instant on would mean your power brick light stays white all the time unless unplugged, Energy saver means the light is orange when the console is off and white when on. As far as
    your console being plugged into a pwr strip its all on the consoles owners choice.

    Is it fine if I unplugged my console while it was set to Instant On?

    Unplugging the console while set to Instant On is fine. The console is in "stand by" while in Instant On so is pulling very little power compared to when it is fully on. You can of course power down the console by pressing and holding the Xbox logo on the
    front of console until it shuts down and the power brick light turns orange before unplugging if you really want but it isn't a requirement.

    I would suggest unplugging from the wall rather than pulling the cable out of the console or power brick while it is still plugged in though.

    Xbox one X right shutdown

    Unplugging it while in instant on mode won't harm the console. However, if you are planning on unplugging it on a regular basis there is no reason to put it in instant on mode as that would effectively defeat the purpose of putting it in instant on mode.
    Unplugging it would have no different effect than a power failure while in instant on mode.

    Hope this helps. Good Luck.

    Installation stopped - again and again - no disc

    Id try the usb install thing once more after leaving it unplugged from the mains for half hour or so and unplug any hdd’s etc before trying to reinstall mine did that once was close to smashing it but it did come back to life eventually and has been fine
    since setting the power to eco mode. I dunno if theres issues with instant on or not but seems weird its been fine since. Definately unplug from for mains for a while and try once more.

    Original Xbox on console problem

    When you set it up to be unplugged regularly, make sure that the console is running in "Energy saving mode" instead of "Instant on" mode. Or have your son pressing the Xbox button on the console for 10 seconds to properly shut the system down before unplugging.

    When the console is in instant on mode, it isn't completely shut down, and the operating system is still running in the background doing updates and working on the hard drive.

    When you unplug the console while in the middle of writing to the disc, it could corrupt data on the hard drive, causing the console to "think" something is wrong and resetting to factory defaults perhaps.

    Xbox não liga. [Edit - translation] - Xbox does not turn on.

    Hello Anee,

    Thank you for keeping us updated. It is most definitely not recommended to unplug your console while it is on or in standby mode. The only appropriate time to unplug your Xbox is when it is fully turned off.

    Power cycling your console
    will fully turn it off if your console is set to Instant-on.

    Unplugging your console while it is on or on stand by mode can cause issues. This is true for most devices as well.
