I'm having the same problem, but resetting to factory defaults didn't make any difference.  Judging by the fact that there's a few other people with the problem, I'm wondering if it's a bad batch?

Which build did you restore factory defaults?

On the latest build (1031).  I submitted a RMA last night as i've tried everything suggested on the forum so far.  Hope it doesn't take long to get it swapped over, i'm dying to try it out!!! How long do they take to reply to the RMA normally?

Adding my 2cents,
I've noticed my XIM3 will turn off after a few seconds if I have the XIM3's usb cord plugged into my 360 upon powering up the 360. If I plug in my XIM3 after the 360 has booted (dashboard showing), I NEVER have a power-down on the XIM3.

I'm running latest fw on my 'launch' XIM3

UPDATE: Just saw new fw released this morning. So I'm still running 0928 fw. ;D

my 2 cents also
Mine does exact same as yours, only mine started doing it after latest update ?

Does the controller LEDs spin before shutting down.

Also, concerning the RMA question, they know you are there (I told them to look out for you). They are going to want to look at this one as every XIM3 is tested and verified working before shipping out.
