Power cycle your Xbox One console.

Follow these steps to power cycle your Xbox One Console:

  1. While the console is on, press and hold the console’s Xbox button for 5 seconds.
  2. The console will power down.
  3. Wait 30 seconds, and then turn your console back on by again pressing the Xbox button.

Note If your console is in Instant-On power mode, the above steps will shut the console completely off. Instant-On mode, or the ability to turn on your console by saying “Xbox On”, won’t be enabled until you restart the console.
