    It'd be possible if the devs made the function workable?

    Possible? Of course. Going to happen? Probably not.

    Probably not, why not? It'd make life so easier for all Xbox Kinect users. :P

    To activate it, yes, but it can also work only just by voice command, if made possible.

    It would be possible if they had an option for a "low power" mode. Rather similar to what the Xbox does when you have background downloading on. Where it will go into a low power state to resume finishing a down until it finishes.
