xbox turning on by itself?

so I keep yelling(or worse) at my little brother to turn the xbox off when he is done using it.

he says he always does that.

my xbox slim 4g is at my computer desk. 

I was using the computer today and it turned on by itself. 

nothing was being downloaded , both the controllers weren't touched at all.

so what can be causing an xbox to turn on by itself?

gremlins? polterghiest? j/k.  IDK. it's weird.

does this happen to anyone else?

Hey there Lunatik! Sometimes the S console's power button can become coated in dust, dirt, or oil that will activate the button. Try wiping down the front of the console with a dry microfiber cloth to see if that helps at all. Also, is your console plugged in directly to the wall and are you using a MS brand power supply? Let me know, thanks!

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Great! Thanks for marking this as the answer.
