Re: 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.

Only solution i have for you is to check your connections on the Xbox, making sure that everything is right. If that checks out and you are NOT getting the red button of doom on your Xbox, then I would use a new connector or if you are using a HDMI connection use the original connector, the one with the three wire coming out the back that connects to the TV. Sometimes dumbing things down will fix it. Also check your TV and make sure that you have the right input channel on for the Xbox. IE input 2 when it should have been input 1. Not saying anything but sometimes this is the simplest solution and the right solution. Hope this helps.
how old is it? that noise is coming from the cd drive it is probably on its way out or is full of dust and dirt, you can clean it yourself but you probably wont be able to fix as they are extremely difficult to work with and you cant just by a new drive as they have special code that link them to the xbox its in if you remove it and put a new one in you will only be able to play dvd as it will not recognise games because the code wont be there
sounds like the start of the blinking green light and the tray wont eject, if you decided to get into it try pulling out both leads to the disc drive check them for damage make them nice an straight blow sockets where they sit and replace them true.if they are damaged replace them, NOTE opening your 360 voids the warranty
This could be a magnet issue, on top of the dvd drive motor there is a magnet that can become detatched, the dvd drive needs to be stripped down and the magnet glued back on, this is usually the case if its a grinding noise.
Hope this helps.
