    My xbox will not turn off using the power button - I have to unplug it. When I plug it back in, the power is already on. The light is a constant green and everything else seems to be working properly. How can I fix this?

    I replaced the face. The funny part is that i can turn it off with the menu but can't turn it on unless i dissconnect it from the wall. then ti turns on by it self... oh and it plays normal...

    Kind of sounds slightly untechnical but have you tried just prodding the power button with a biro or something when the faceplate's off.
    It sounds to me as though the buttons jammed in.

    might be trace corrosion........
    i too had, some time ago, a first model xbox with the same problem that you had. the power on/of didn't respond, i my case i had trace corrosion (after some time it also started to randomly shut down after a few hours of gameplay). i had to retrace a few traces, after which the problem was solved (and the power on/of button again worked). same as c4rn1 replied btw....
