Green light flashes and psu stays on after turning X Box 360 off

I was wondering why my x box green light flashes once about every 3 seconds and the psu stays on for at least a minute after turning my console off any suggestions?

Is background downloads enabled?

What that means is your 360 will do downloads in the background when you shut it off.  This can be disabled however.

I've had this happen to me on a few occasions as well. Do you happen to have any storage devices connected to it when you turn it off, by any chance?

Could just be the HDD spinning up to finish tidying up before powering down. I have a couple consoles that do something similar, even though they're not downloading anything.

 

I wouldn't worry about it.

Also if you were playing for a good long time, do not have background downloads enabled or if the hard drive is not doing its thing, the psu will stay on and the light will flash, because the fan is running so the console can cool down.
