    Please make it to where we can say Xbox controller off, and the controller power is automatically turned off!

    SuperDan9001.....seriously.....you do know that the wireless controllers vibrate based on all sorts of input into them from the console right? Plus just the normal current way to turn of the controller is a signal from the console. So of course its possible that we could use Kinect to turn it off if the devs ever bothered to add the command

    OMG i was thinking this exact same thing the other day when i was eating. "xbox turn off controller" so my batteries don't go flat while eating this meal . lol

    It would be better if Kinect tracks wether you hold the Controller in your Hand or not. So when you lay it down the controller turns off and when you lift it again the controller turns on automatically. Without saying anything. Maybe with a delay of 5 secounds.

    I don't think that would be able to happen, I'm sure the controllers are input only, to have it do that command you would need an output (so far only having it connected via USB charge / update cable).
    It is a nice idea though and if it was to be possible then I'm all for it.

    LSx Awakened, NO YOU CAN'T.

    There is currently no way to use voice command to turn off your controller.

    Don't understand why we ain't prompt with the same options we have when we hold the Xbox-button down, and have the option to either turn off the console or just the controller?
