I think Series X has made me more eco-friendly

With the One X, I would leave the console running for hours, even if I was done playing games on it and I was watching a film or something. Then, hours later, I’d return to doing stuff on the One X.

With Series X, I’m actually turning off the console when I’m not using a lot more - I think its because the thing boots up so quickly, and with Quick Resume, I can boot up and get right into games like Gears Tactics in less than a minute, which I think (for me) justifies the decision to turn the thing off more often.

…or is it just me thinking this way?

It certainly boots fast enough that time to boot is no longer a reason to keep it in standby.

But I like to have everything updated as needed and to remote install games when they are available.

Also, every now and then I use remote play from the phone so having it in standby also makes it possible.

It boots up faster than my TV so I don’t really see the point in keeping it on instant on mode. I’ve always used the Eco settings even on the Xbox One.
