He may have just tossed the controller onto a chair and it hit the X button in the middle. If that's not the case, it may be a software glitch. This happened to me before, where it turned itself on when the controller was face-up with nothing on it. I just pulled out the power cord. Eventually the problem went away, and it doesn't turn itself on anymore.

So just pull the power, and plug it back in when he wants to play it.

My x-box wont power up, it was okay til my son moved it for one room to another, the prower brick cord is yellow, so its gettin power< but the x-box itself will not power up, can someone help me

Unplug everything from the console. Make sure that the power cord from the brick to the back of the console is firmly connected to the brick. then make sure that the cord is firmly connected to the back of the 360. This cord sometimes appears to be completely inserted but will actually be slightly out of the socket. Make sure that the video cable from the back of the 360 is also firmly installed. Reset the Xbox 360 and the TV and see if it doesn't start up for you.

Xbox 360 not working

Call 1-800-4MY-XBOX if you see red rings around the power light.  If you just bought it 7 months ago, it is still under warranty.  Do not use one of the custom shops who say they will fix the red ring errors as this will void your warranty with Microsoft.

Xbox turning on

When the xbox 360 is plugged into a power outlet, power is at the "entrance" of the console is stopped or held. When there is an internal hardware issue, some of the power leaks into the console, turning it on. If you want to fix the issue, I would suggest calling microsoft for repair. (only if you are under warranty) Otherwise, find a better repair company.

The grinding noise is natural, it is the console's way of turning on.
