On xbox 360 when you turn off the console is can it still download a game?

Yes u can download stuff on ur Xbox when it is "off". Its called background download. When ur done gaming but u still have something in ur Active Downloads, u can turn off the Xbox but it will not completely shut off, instead it will finish downloading ur game or whatever. U can activate the Background Download by going to Settings, System Settings, Console Settings, Startup and Shutdown, and select Background Download to turn it on. The on/off button will blink when u turn off the console and u have something downloading, and will stop when the download is completed and the console will turn off completely.

No. The Xbox needs to be on but it can be in that state where it's dim when you don't touch the controller.

No. It must be on. But if you don't touch buttons for a while, the screen goes black, as if it's off, but it's really in hibernation mode.

MrNeil got it right. The xbox will be in a hibernation mode until the download is complete.
