How to fully turn off?

I turned my Xbox One off, the xbox logo light turns off but you can still hear it going. Just would like to know if this is normal or just a setting that's on.

None of my games worked for a moment and I tried to turn it off, the logo kept flashing and I couldn't turn it off via front of console, is your problem similar to this?

It may remain with the fans on for a while either because it is downloading games or updates or just to help the console reach a low temperate with help from the fans. Xbox 360 did the same, but it was much louder!

You can force it to turn off by holding the power button, this will totally shut it down, it will take ages to boot up next time you turn it on though.

Hold the power button down for 8-10 seconds, that turns it completley off

Are your consoles set to instant on? If yes the console is waiting for the xbox on command and its searching for updates for games,apps. Yes this is normal if you want to turn your console off go to my games and apps select settings go to power and start up switch your consoles from instant on to energy saver. Hope this helps

Even if the console is completely off, it may still have the fans on to cool it down faster.  So that's what it could be doing.

Sadly the console will remain in standby even if "powered off" but that only happens because of a aspect in windows 8 that was integrated in the XBOXOS before the launch of the Xbox One

the xbox one is automaticaly set to update any games that updates or any system updates it will have it installed by the time you log back on you can set it to power off in the settings menu also if you disconnect the kinnect it will fully shut off it stays in stand by for the xbox on command. turning off the command does not work with the new update it will still turn on there are still a few bugs needing to work out on microsofts end. also if you are worried about it not shutting off once it has lights out you can unplug the xbox form the outlet and know for sure it wont be turning on or listning.
