Inactivity Doesn't Work

So my settings are: 

Turn off after: 1 hour of inactivity

Power mode: Instant on with wake up xbox and auto updates checked.

My xbox has not turned off though or went into a stand by mode. All it does is dim the brightness after several minutes, but won't turn off. I left it on Netflix over night as I fell asleep watching a movie. When I turned my TV on my xbox was still running Netflix. I left it on the dashboard/home screen today for two hours as I went out and came back and it was still on the dashboard and lit up brightly as I walked in front of the Kinect.

Am I not understanding the settings or does this not work? I don't want to be forced to leave my Xbox on 24/7 or over night every night when I watch TV as I fall asleep.

Seem to happen to me aswell.. i suggest you shutdown the console manually for now. Maybe the support will come with something in a near futur regarding this issue.

Today I woke up with the TV option broke. Fell asleep watching TV with the timer on. Woke up TV off, turned on and the TV option no longer works (picture here: http://i.imgur.com/MSTgrFd.jpg). I tried turning off and on (even hard reboot by holding down for 5 seconds) and I even tried to reset the TV setup no dice. My cable box works fine, I unplugged the HDMI cord and put directly into my TV and it worked. What gives? This console is starting to look more and more incomplete and unfinished.

I also had this problem and it seems that when the kinect is hooked up to your  xbox it won't turn off no matter what you set it at, 1 hr, or 6hrs. I think it's because the kinect is still recognising you as being active. When I disconnected my kinect the 1hr, 6hr function works 100%. Just use sign in instant on in your settings  so your gamer tag  signs in instantly. Obviously you won't have voice commands so I guess it's up to you what you prefer. I hope this helps.
