Xbox powers up for no reason

Well, the title kind of explains my issue already. here I am, just sitting on my couch, and all of a sudden I notice my xbox is turned on. I thought, maybe I accidentally pushed the button sometime earlier, and I turned it off.

The thing is though, 5 seconds after turning it off, it activates itself again, and again, and again. Currently I have my xbox unplugged as it's driving me crazy. I have no downloads which would cause it to stay on until the download is done, and also it doesn't seem to be my controller ( controller doesn't turn on, it's a wireless to begin with ).

Now I have read something about Samsung TV's causing this problem, and I do infact have a Samsung smart tv, but then again I've had this tv for half a year and this xbox for 3 years, so I don't assume this is the problem.

If you have a newer model, slim, the buttons a very sensitive, and if they get dirt on them this could happen.

Nope, I have one of the older models. Also I hadn't touched the thing until I had to turn it off today, so I don't think dirt is the problem.

It will do that when your Xbox is turning old!

After a while your playing it will turn off on you & It only does it for like 5-20 mins then it should stop.

Well alright then, but does that mean there's nothing I can do about it? I know it sounds kind of lazy / spoiled on my part but the way / place my xbox is positioned it's pretty annoying to unplug it every time I'm done, and I'm not a big fan of high power bills...

You could call Xbox and see what they say about it.

They might fix it or something

Alright then, I guess I'll plug it back in tomorrow and if the problem ever occurs again I'll see if it falls under some kind of warranty.
