    XBOX turns on by itself?

    Thanks for all the help, although it turns out that my Guitar Hero controller was under a load of stuff in my bedroom and was on, hence causing the xbox to turn on by itself and to show an extra controller being connected XD

    Xbox turning on by itself

    Yes this a common thing with the console. There are a few things to look at first I'm assuming you talking about the original Xbox One and not the S model. The original Xbox one uses touch sensitive switch to power the unit on and off, they are sensitive to
    a ground fault condition. This can be caused by having the console plugged into a power strip that is a surge suppressor. The Xbox One console have build in surge suppressors so they need to pulled directly into the wall outlet and not a surge suppressor
    power strip ( https://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-one/console/connect-power-supply ). Also make sure it's not on a circuit that has a GFI breaker, these are the ones like to
    bathrooms usually.

    With some Samsung TVs, turning on your TV may also turn on your Xbox.

    The other thing is a controller that might be faulty and sending the power on signal but the controller does not power on itself. Pull the batteries from your controllers and see if you console still randomly turns on.

    Another thing to realize is your Xbox One has an IR sensor to receive remote control signals and some remotes can send the correct signals to power on your console. Logitech Harmony remote do this. There are apps on Cell phones that will also do this as
    some cell phone like Samsungs have an IR transmitter. Try to cover the IR sensor on you console if you think you have something that might be sending the IR signal.

    Another thing that will turn on your console the the Xbox App on windows 10, iphone, ipads or Android phones/tables. The device only need to be on the same network as your Xbox. I know of students in an dorm using the same network accidentally turning
    on and off wrong consoles, the same true in hotels (those are usually not accidentally). You can go into the setting on the console and require app connection to authenticate before connecting.

    With all these things the most common cause is usually the first one, not plugged directly into the wall outlet. The next is a rouge IR signal (from a neighbors house!!!). I think MS second is different them mine which is a controller issue (pull the batteries).

    I hope this all helps.

    Xbox turned itself on.

    It’s possessed! Just kidding! Sounds like it needs a hard reset or possibly do you have it connected to a digital assistant that then picked up on a word to power it on?

    Xbox turned itself on.

    That's really strange lol. I've had my Xbox One not turn off before, like I was trying to manually turn it off with the controller and then by holding my finger on the power button to do a hard reset, and it just stayed on. I've also had my gamertag get
    unintentionally signed in to the console by loading up the Xbox app on my phone in the same room, and since the app is linked to my console, it auto-signed me in. But I've never seen the console just turn on by itself lol. Maybe a strange power glitch or the
    auto-on feature triggered somehow? If it keeps doing it, you may need to unplug your console when you're not using it. Good luck! :)
