I already know that the speed for one's Xbox to access content depends on the signal quality with one's network. That's not the kind of slow I'm talking about. I couldn't get this point across to anyone I know that owns a 360 themselves, so I thought I'd get that out of the way right away so I don't have the same problem on the boards. Also I own the new Xbox, not the original one.
The problem I'm having is that whether connected to my router or not at all, whenever I try to shut my Xbox off after using it, it takes a long time for it to shut down. Sometimes it turns off right away, but every other shut down would take anywhere between a few seconds to a full ten minutes before the green lights are off on the console and power supply and there are no more sounds being made. I'd normally dismiss this, but after a friend of mine had sent in his console back after similar irregularities turning into red rings of death several times, I refuse to take any risk with my new console. None of my friends with the new console have had a problem or hiccups like mine does, so that's why I'm turning to the boards for help.
Should this be a concern of things to come, or is this something that I should just ignore?
