lately, no idea why, the xbox keeps turning on by itself, even after shutting it off again...any suggestions as to why this might be?

thank you!

It sounds like it may be receiving a signal from something to turn it on - mostly likely via infared. could someone's remote control perhaps be accidentally controlling it?

I really don't know. If it is, it's certainly not coming from within the house. I just turned it off again not five minutes ago, and it was back on! It seems to be happening more frequently, and has never happened before (last few days). And have owned it for nearly 2 years now.

Maybe a power surge coming from the wall socket?  I had a tv and HD sat receiver that would come on for no reason, when ever it felt like.  After a house blessing and an electronic exorcism (lol), I unpluged the unit and moved it to a different room, problem solved.  Check the socket and surge protector.

Maybe your power button is stuck/broken. Try removing the faceplate and see if you still have the problem.

Yes I'd still like to know if that was the problem the OP was having. I think thats most likely.
