    Kinect 2.0 Continuously Turns Off and On by Itself


    I have 3 Xbox ones. A Day One edition, a Halo 5 edition, and 1 regular 1st gen. They all work perfectly. They all have Kinect. On the first two consoles I mentioned I've had major problems with Kinect turning off by itself. Occasionally it will turn itself
    back on, but usually I have to hard reboot. Sometimes they stay on for 5 minutes, sometimes they stay on for two days. I've replaced both with brand new Kinects, and I sent one out for Microsoft to "repair". It works for a while and then the same thing happens.

    I guess my questions are:

    Does anyone else have this issue?

    Is there an update or something that can resolve this, since it clearly isnt a hardware issue?

    Any help would be appreciated, I'm sick of dumping money into what would otherwise be a great feature.

    :)

    Thanks Legend! I didnt know that, good stuff. Does the webcam replace the Kinect completely with the ability to use it for the Xbox/Cortana voice commands and TV Control?

    So is it possible

    You can turn off the Kinect's functions but every console is sold with the Kinect 2.0.
