xbox power button no longer works

i dont seem to be able to turn on and off my xbox via the power button, however, i can still turn it on by opening the disk drive, or holding down the xbox button on the controller, and then to turn off i have to eaither go into xbox settings and choose power off console, or click the xbox button on the controller, go to the settings tab, and click power off, but i was wondering if there is a way to fix the power button?

i have the xbox 360 slim and got it in eaither 2011 or 2012

Have you tried cleaning the button? Since it is a touch-sensitive button, sometimes dirt or even the oil from your fingertips can prevent it from working.

Hey Man,

This does in fact sound like a hardware issue. I would suggest submitting your Xbox 360 for Repair

Let us know how that goes, or if you have anymore questions.
