    Not that I know of. Best thing you could do would be to not store the password for your gamertag so somebody can't use it.

    It doesn't stop anybody playing the machine though.

    You can password your gametag but not the machine.

    I used to hide the power brick inside a wellington boot, that always stoped the 'person' from using it. :smashin:

    From what i've read you can password your own ID and create another one for someone else and limit that to basically kiddies games and unless they know the password you've set on their profile then they won't be able to play anything apart from barbie's horse riding adventure.

    If you have Live I think once you put a passcode on your profile, it stops peeps from logging in until you enter passcode.

    Thats what I have done since day uno, mrs, kids etc cant access it.

    Okay, me and my bro got a 360 for Christmas, my mom let me set up live on my profile, so I put a passcode on my profile, so my lil bro can't get on it. But it locks live from him using it. Is there a way to only lock my profile?

    Well you could have your profile on memory card which I do or on a usb stick & just take it out of the machine, then he wont be able to use your account & can play on his as can be stored on the HDD

    What I was going to say.

    Just buy a USB stick and put your profile on that and remove it from the machine when you're not playing.

    Don't you kids get taught to play nice and SHARE anymore?:D

    Look at it this way, if "someone" you don't want to allow access to your xbox keeps on doing it, perhaps you could suggest that this person contributes to your hobby? You get more games etc.. they get to not pay out for an xbox... win-win if you ask me!
    If not, perhaps a swift kick in the swede will sort your problem. Passwords? PAH!, we used to treat our siblings different in our day :rotfl:
