Just be a better consumer
I read and watched plenty about the Xbox One before buying one, but as with any new piece of technology (and for me the Kinect is definitely new since I never used the old one) there are some things that you can't understand until you have some hands on time with it. I spent time trying to figure these things out, couldn't, and asked for help. I never used Windows 8 either except very briefly, and had trouble navigating that, so the interface here was a bit strange as well. Still can't locate where the storage details are, and I checked every menu under settings. Will manually give that PS4 feed a try, but was wondering if there was a guide so I could follow along rather than blindly thrashing about.
But yeah, be a better consumer, right?
@flymeatwad: To set your Xbox One in standby/instant mode, head to the settings and there should be a section listed power mode. Head into there and choose if you want power saving (full shut off) or "stand-by" mode.
Thanks! Will try that now. Wish I could just set it to download and power off, but will settle for stand by for sure.
Well, if you have a download going and shut off your Xbox, it will continue to download until it finishes or just set up everything in a queue and let it go.
This seems to have been the case. I woke up, walked in front of the Kinect, and the console and Kinect fired up despite me turning the console off before going to bed. All of my downloads and installs were finished. I'll see if it's in sleep mode now or if it's actually off.
