    i hate to leave my xbox 360 on just to download something because it wastes a lot of electricity

    I know you can select Background Downloads but when i'm downloading something i turn my 360 off by the power button on the console and i hear it still on but a little bit silent, i guess that is it still on to download what ever i'm trying to get. But after like 2 minutes it completely turns off, i can't hear anything from it. I know that the file isn't finshed downloading because it is a large file which can't get downloaded as fast as 2 secounds.

    Does this happen to any of the fellow 360 owners?

    Why don't you play games while downloading instead? Like something offline.

    Go to the settings tab > Console Settings > Shutdown > Background Downloads and enable it.

    Background downloading does not work with every game.
    Forgot to add: if you have a play and charge kit, plug your pad in and turn off the 360. It will stay in that mode you described and allow you to keep downloading.
