  1. Xbox updating games while off


    I have an xbox one x. It is set to energy saving mode. I always turn it off using my controller when I'm done. Recently ive noticed things have been updating even when it is off. Not asleep....off. Is this a new feature I'm not aware of? I swear it ised to only update things when i turned it on.

    :)

    there are some rather well known bugs with preview program. Its possible but not likely.

    Update Games while Xbox is off

    This just started for me recently. I have all the settings correct and never had any issues before but my xbox will only update while on.

    The xbox will only update if it is "sleeping". If you do a hard poweroff it will not update games. I typically leave my xbox on at night downloading a game, and when it does the automatic shut off, it still continues to download the game.

    It could very well be down to being in the preview program. I would expect faults. It is the reason why I dropped out of the preview builds.
