My XBOX ONE keeps turning on by itself...Help?

My XBOX ONE keeps turning on by itself.  It is usually late at night, I wake up in the morning or if it's been off for more than a couple of hours and the xbox is on.  It turns my TV on, but not my cable box, and my tv is dim.  Then when I get my controller, my TV stays dim until I turn my xbox off and back on again.  I've seen this asked in other forums, so I know im not the only one, but from their threads, it seems like moderators are giving generic answers, marking the post as "resolved" when the issue isn't fixed.  Anyone have ideas?  Thanks.

I too have this problem.  Every morning when I wake I, I come in to a TV that is dim, a cable box that is on, and an Xbox One that is on.  I've googled this and there doesn't appear to be an answer.  Do I have a faulty Xbox (I just got it less than a week ago) that needs returned? Or is there another answer?

I've had this issues a couple times, but not in a while..  Did you try the power button reset? Holding for 30 seconds or so, till the fans and everything shuts down, then unplugging for 2 mins..  I did that for another issue and have not had this issue since either..

I too have been having this problem every day since the new commercials came out. I could see my xbox turn on when he said xbox on. However the last couple days I have unplugged my kinect and it is still turning on. Today I woke up to find it not only on, but a game was loaded, and tv was snapped(even though it's not setup or have ever used it). I'm about to send Microsoft a bill as there's a noticeable jump in my electric bill since the xbox has been deciding to play itself.

I should point out that I live alone and it's not like I have friends or kids or even a pet to turn it on in the middle of the night.

I also have this issue, picked up a kinect-less xbox one two weeks ago.  I tried turning off auto updates thinking that could be it, but no avail.  There really isnt a setting i see?

I'm bumping this up because my Xbox One just started doing this yesterday. We turn it off, it turns itself back on within an hour. The screen is dimmed and won't light up even when we use a controller. Auto-sign-in is off as is the ability to turn on the Xbox using Kinect.
