Console is off/standby but is saturating my upload

Sitting here with the console off, wondering why my internet connection has slowed down.  I login to my router to see that my upload is being pegged by something.  Everything on the network is idle, except the Xbox One, which is the culprit.  I unplug the console from my switch, and the bandwidth usage instantly returns to idle.  Plug it back in, and it starts right back up.  What the F***K is it doing!?  I'd really love to know, and i'd encourage everyone else to investigate and see if their consoles are doing the same thing when turned off/in standby.

Mine is occasionally sending tiny packets. But nothing big and definitely not affecting my speeds. How big are the packets that it's sending and how often is it sending them?

I don't care how big the packets are, just the fact that it is *saturating* the upstream and affecting the latency/responsiveness of my connection.  I normally average around 200 MB going out the WAN port per day.  Since getting the Xbox One, I've averaged 800 MB upload per day.

This is on a 12/2 connection that averages about 11.5/1.6

Energy saving mode seems to fix it, but of course, the trade-off is it takes ages to boot.

The Xbox One self-updates when set to the "instant-on" power mode. If this mode is set to "power saver" then you will get update prompts when you boot up the console and the boot up time is increased to about 1 minute.

You don't understand the difference between upload and download, do you?  Obviously, if the console were updating, it would be downloading from the MS servers.  It's not touching the download side at all.  Please, read and understand the post first.

It is not turning all the way off, the xbox one has a unique power mode that is called "instant on" in power & startup in options. It continues to use internet to download updates and be ready for a 2 second start. You can change this in settings and change it to "energy saving", and that completely turns it off. If your games ever stop working follow this instruction.

I'm curious if this upload issue has stopped? My first thought was maybe a stealth update but you said your up is being hammered so it wouldn't be that. I'd be interested to know just what, exactly, is being sent.

I've yet to experience this problem nor have I heard about it before, so not too sure man.

The end is all that is ever true.

Do you accept the 'periodically send data to microsoft' check boxes and stuff during initial setup?

Hi all, I confirm what jwalker55 try to explain to you. Our Xbox One are not supposed to send so much data. The Xbox One send almost 250 kpbs constantly in sleep mode. Why ????? Microsoft has to give us an answer ? Are you using our connections to peer to peer when the One are in sleep mode ?
