    BBC News - E3: Xbox One ad is switching on Microsoft consoles

    Quite amusing story about another XBOX One issue.

    Xbox One owners are complaining that a new TV advert is switching their consoles on without their permission.

    The ad - featuring Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul - has the actor say "Xbox On" near its start.

    The instruction appears to trigger the machine's Kinect voice/motion sensor, activating the console
    Here is the advert in question:

    Just read about this on BBC - simples, just turn off the voice commands or turn the console off by the plug.
