I'm not really helping here but do you really have to hit the guide button, go to the dash, and shut it off for there. what could happen if i just shut it off from the game.
Nothing, it doesn't matter how you shut it off as long as the console remains plugged in.
The power button isn't actually a power switch, it's just a soft-button that tells the console to go through its shut down procedure; no different then selecting shutdown from the guide.
One thing that DOES matter is how you boot up. You shouldn't boot with a disc in the drive... there are a few games that corrupt your save game when the console is booted with the disc in the drive. It has something to do with auto loading profiles (which I'd recommend turning off if you have it on).
If you left a game disc in the drive the best thing to do is boot up the console using the eject button instead of the power button, wait for the dash and your profile to fully load then put the disc back in... at least until the games are patched.This post has been edited by twistedsymphony: Jan 13 2006, 02:31 PM
