    Xbox keeps switching itself on


    I had a problem with my Xbox one x which kept switching itself on! Thought must be the age or HDMI cable which I changed a couple of times that didn’t work so eventually bought a series x last week to find out this is doing the exact same. Anybody got any idea what it could be anyone know if an external hard drive can cause this?

    :)

    Xbox keeps switching itself on

    Hello, LoopyNuts. Thanks for reaching out! My name is Lucas. I'm an Independent Advisor and a Microsoft user just like you. I'll be happy to assist you today.

    This can be the Xbox turning on to check for system or games updates. You could try to disable this option if you want:

    - Press the Xbox button > Select Profile & system > Settings > General > Power mode & start-up > Select "Energy saving mode" from the Power mode.

    - Press the Xbox button > Select Profile & system > Settings > System > Updates. Under Updates, uncheck "Keep my console up to date" and "Keep my games & apps up to date".

    See if the issue persists and please let me know how it goes.

    Xbox one keeps switching itself off

    Hello ROFHIWATHANGAVHUELO,

    Thanks for posting on the Xbox forums. We understand that your Xbox One is turning itself off after you play a game for a few minutes. Does this issue occur with multiple games or a single game? We recommend

    power cycling the console
    by holding down the power button on the console for ten seconds. Also, we recommend plugging the console directly into a wall outlet. We have a support article that provides

    Xbox one keeps switching itself off

    I tried it and it did the same thing, it does it on different games and the thing is once it shuts itself off the light on the power adapter goes off too but I doubt it might be because of the cable/adpater since
    it's still in good condition and not bending in any way

    Home xbox switching itself

    Hi WyattWall, I hope you're doing great out there despite the issue that you're experiencing. I am an Independent advisor and I am here to help you in regards to your concern.

    I would like to clarify, are there multiple Xbox consoles in your household where your mother's account is being used as well?

    The Home Xbox will be removed on one console only if the account will be set as Home Xbox to another Xbox console or if it will be removed manually.
