Hmm sounds similar to me. I saw a post stating that usb port where the controllers are connected were shorting out to ground. So I took my 360 apart and sure enough the pins were shorted to ground. A good thing to check is the orange light on the power brick. If before you plug it into the back of the 360 its a steady orange light and then you plug it into the console it blinks (pay attention) its a good possibitility that it is shorting out somewhere in the console. If you have a mulitmeter you can check the back of the power plug input to ground or the controller usb to ground. Even though I found that this was my problem with my xbox unfortunately for me my board was also fried. From now on Im going to collect xbox's that are broken and use them to fix my new xbox when it breaks(im sure it will) because microsoft enjoys putting out an infererior piece of ****. I'll be dam*** if ill pay anyone a penny and wait half a year to get a repaired (but still broken) xbox back, when I know Ill be able to fix my own. Maybe Ill open up my own 360 repair shop just to show microsoft how. customer service should be handled. Anyway hope that helps and you have better luck then I did.

according to the microsoft website:
The power supply has several built-in safeguards to help prevent damage to either the console or to the power supply itself. The power supply can turn itself off when there is too much current, too much voltage, or too high a temperature. Under these conditions, the light on the power supply will turn from green to orange or to red. Or, the light will turn off. When the power supply light is green, the power supply is working correctly.
To help the power supply work correctly, always try to use the following best practices:

Mine has an orange light and works fine. i think that's standby mode. it turns green as soon as the 360 powers up. try replacing the power cord that goes from the 360 back to the power block. It may be faulty.
