Your TV may be turning on your XBOX when it sends a signal when it's turned on or doing other things.

Check to see if your TV has a setting for HDMI-CEC or something similar to that name - and see if it's ON...if so, turn it OFF. It could also be turning on other devices like a Blu-Ray player.

Thanks. I did check that as well. It’s called Bravia sync on my tv and it is not synced nor does tv turn anything else on.

Is this a brand new Xbox One? If not did anything else change (receiver, tv, power supply, etc.?) Do you have something like a harmony hub that can turn the device on/off? Anything like an IR repeater hooked up?

No, nothing at all changed which is weird and it’s at least a year or 2 old. No hub. No socket change or anything out of ordinary. Just started to happen...

Contact Microsoft support, like I suggested the last time you brought this up. You've obviously exhausted all the options end users know about, aside from doing a full reset of the console. So: full reset or contact support.

I would factory reset the console and set the TV settings back to default.

100% this.
Also unplug the Kinect if you still have one plugged in for some reason.

Note that doing a factory reset means having to re-install your games (your saves should be in the cloud, so you're fine), but it's worth doing once in awhile.

There's an option now to work around that: "Reset and keep my games & apps". It clears out all the OS-level stuff while maintaining everything else. I've had to use it on an older XB1 console, and it was a huge timesaver.

^Nice! I might have seen that, but didn't really notice it. Good to know.

Xbox Live Gold 12 months - free for veterans - is live again (for now... it sells out fast whenever this happens)

edit: and sold out. sorry guys.

i don't know. i set everything back to the way it was, instant on, Kinect, updates auto...hasn't turned on by itself since. i think it's the curse of Anthem myself bc seems to have started after i downloaded that pile of poop, but so far so good...

That's not how that works.... It's like saying "this music is free with my Spotify subscription" or "I get a free monthly magazine with my magazine subscription."

Yeah, that's why I didn't even bother

If you get Crackdown 2 now while it's free, you own it for good. Not a lease like gamepass.

This is going to be another huge blow to Gamestop since they are already on their last leg.
Here's an interesting article on how a disc-less Xbox would hurt GameStop's business.

I know this has ben discussed before, but it looks like Microsoft will announce their new consoles at E3 this year with a release date of the end of 2020.

It looks like the new disc-less Xbox is coming 5/7. Still no price though.

That's pretty funny.

Maybe I should d/l & delete it to see if it fixes my issue as well.

That was the last thing I tried just bc it seemed to have started when I first started playing and so far. Just uninstalled though. Didn’t completely delete.
