How do I stop my Xbox 360 from turning off when I turn my TV off?

Hello,

Yesterday night I made it to round 42 in Zombies when I started to doze off.  I left my Xbox on, but I turned my screen off.  When I woke up today, I was furious to see the startup screen.

Is there a way to stop my Xbox from turning off when I turn my TV off?

Thanks!

The power going to your Xbox is in no way connected to your TV. The only way you could shut them both off at the same time is it they're plugged into the same outlet and you used the switch to turn the television off instead of the power button. I think that the most likely cause of your Xbox turning off is because in your system setting you have selected the option to have your console automatically turn off after 6 hours of inactivity.

Go to System Settings, Console Settings, Startup and Shutdown and make sure that you don't have Auto-Off enabled.

 

Also check your TV settings. Many sets have an option to turn off devices connected via HDMI when the TV itself is turned off. Your television may also have this option.

Thanks for the replies, but none of them have worked. My Xbox doesn't exactly lose power, I think it goes into some sort of sleep. The power button is lit, but when I turn my console back on, like I said, it just restarts.

If you are using HDMI, the xbox restarts if you turn off your screen or change the channel.

  • Here are the step to stop this if you are having trouble:
  • Step 1:  on the back of your Xbox above the HDMI port, there is a larger port. This is were your headset plugs in.
  • Step 2: Remove this lead
  • Step 3: Buy this cable       http://goo.gl/mJdDef
  • Replace your old HDMI adapter with your new one 

And from now on it wont turn off :))))
