Xbox One Randomly Turns On

For the last month or so my Xbox One console would randomly turn on when I am not using it. I use a wired controller that I make sure is not plugged in when it is not in use and I don't have a Kinect so there is no way for an input to happen. Any ideas for possible solution would be appreciated. Thank you

Do you use any of the Xbox apps for your phone or PC? Those can turn on your console if the device using it is connected to your network.

Hello there, 

    Thank you for posting on Xbox Forums. Just to clarify, do you own an Xbox One, One S or One X? Have you tried to unplug the Xbox One from the wall for 2 minutes then plug it back in, to which you wait 30 seconds before turning the console back on? If you have an Xbox One Original you may want to try this support article as well. 

    If you have any other questions please feel free to reply back letting us know. Thank you again for posting on Xbox Forums. 

Sincerely,
Ruben
Happy Gaming!

Dear SUPER5OLD13R,

Make sure to power off completely by switching off the input supply.

I have the Xbox One Original and I have tried unplugging it and leaving it unplugged after the first time this happened but the console still will randomly turn on for no reason.

I make sure to let the console power off completely before I leave it. I power it off from the home and make sure the controller is unplugged.

Hello there, 

    Thank you for replying back. Just to clarify, do you have the Xbox One plugged directly into a wall outlet, or is it plugged into a power strip or surge protector? The Xbox one should always be plugged into a wall outlet for the best use of the system. Have you tried to plug it into a different wall outlet? 

    If you could please reply back letting us know so that we may properly assist you. Thank you again for posting on Xbox Forums. 

Sincerely,
Ruben
Happy Gaming!

Is the Xbox turning on at the same time that you are turning on your TV or switching inputs on your TV? My Samsung TV switches on my Xbox automatically.
