Obviously the microphone has to be for the "Xbox on" command to work.
When the xbox is "off" it's more of a standby mode. That is how it listens for the "xbox on" command. Since the mic and camera are both contained in the kinect unit, which must be plugged into the xbox in order to use the system, it would be a matter of changing a few lines of code during a system update to set the camera and/or mic to be on any/all of the time and save that data either to the xbox or the cloud.
