So, I'm going to show you how to turn off your Xbox Kinect without having to turn off your console. So what you're going to do is you're going to go either to your dashboard or any screen that you can use your controller, and you're going to hit your center button right here, that brings up this Xbox guide. You're going to scroll on over to "Settings" and select "System Settings." Now on this menu you're going to go down one to "Kinect Settings." And here you go, you can see various options; for this, we're going to click on "Sensor." And there we go, we can either turn it on or off. So I'm going to turn it off, hit "B" for back, going to go back one more time, and Kinect is gone. And that's how you turn your Xbox 360 Kinect off.
