Opening the 360's disc tray when playing a demo

When you open the disc tray, why does it quit back to the dash when you're playing a demo? This has irked me for ages!

Because if you are then going to put a disc in you will be putting that disc in to use it

Thats how i have always thought of it anyway

I've never done it for demos, but for retails games I know it does.

I think MS have hard wired the eject button into a reset button, dating back to the Xbox hitting Eject turns the console on, and boots you to the system OS when playing a game. Where as the PS2 would just eject the disc and then ask you to re-insert the game.
