    You're supposed to turn it off at the plug, the power brick still heats up when left on using about 15 watts of power.

    Would be like leaving those block plug adapters on all the time, they still use quite a bit of energy. They heat up like a bitch.

    If your mum still pays the bill you won't bother though of course

    So do the old ones, not just the slim.

    You mean when your xbox is on and its charging a usb device, then you turn the console off that the usb devices still charge?? if so then yes i did know as the console goes into a low power mode as you can till hear it slightly.. (or atleast my old version 360 does)

    Same with chargeing a cotroller if your charging it when you turn the console off it will still continue charging

    I did know, as I was a PS3 owner in the past. The back of the PS3 has an on/off switch, which the slim seems to lack.

    if the xbox is still drawing power from the mains then yes it does

    Crazy when you find something out that every man and his dog knows.....
