Hi all, smile.gif

I have a quick question.
With the old Xbox it was possible to restart the console at a crash for example, by using the controller.

Is this possible with the x360 too?

If it is, with which keys?

Thnx

By pressed the 'X' in the center of the controller you can access the guide which gives you a shutdown option. After the box is shutdown pressing the 'X' again will wake up the box and power it on.

In a crash situation you have to do a hard reset.

On the Xbox 1, it was an added feature by installing a new Bios not something microsoft offered.

Thank you Havok.

I knew I could use the X key to shutdown.
