My Xim4 turns off and my xbox is set to instant on and auto updates are on. It may be "turn off storage when xbox is off" which turns off my hard drive and xim when I power down.

Thanks. Wondered why my ssd would always stay on

Well I have the x1x but I used an ssd for storage on my original Xbox one so I just kept it since games were downloaded already. And the latest beta takes care of the powering down issue

I had this problem with my XIM4 on my Xbox One and finally realized it was tied to automatic updates.

Turn OFF automatic updates on the Xbox One console and that should fix it.  Auto updates cause the console to take too long to power down which causes the XIM and connected devices to shut off and then come back on (and stay on).

Power setting has to be set to power saving and auto updates turned off for the unit to shut off and stay off, at least that is my experience with the XIM4, my Apex is coming today but I assume it will be the same.

Thanks for the tip. This method works for me.

Just ordered a cheeky 250gb for 1-2 current games.

Still works in 2020 on the Apex.  Thanks man!

my apex is always on regardless of what I do to the xbox series S settings. I assume there is a fix for this?

My Xbox had to be set to instant on. Energy saving kept it on

Instant on will keep the USB ports active

I had a Xbox One X and I now have a Xbox series X
Both behave the same way

The USB port on the front seems to shut down with Power Saving on (Can't remember what that function is called)

Funny thing is that I use one of the rear USB ports on my Xbox Series X to charge my MS wireless headphones and that port stays active after shutting down the Xbox
