  1. Xbox Controller automatically disconnects and disables mouse.


    Yesterday I was using a USB xbox controller and everything worked fine. I left my PC for a while and it went to sleep and when I came back I found that my mouse wasn't working anymore. Now whenever I try to plug in the xbox controller, it connects for about five seconds then disconnects and the mouse disappears. Unplugging the mouse and plugging it back in doesn't make it reappear and it seems the only way to fix it is to restart the computer. The usb port itself seems fine as I can connect my mouse to it and it works perfectly okay. If I try disconnecting and reconnecting the controller, it j

    Xbox One Wireless controller keeps disconnecting

    After reading some replies on here, there seem to be a lot of various theories. I'm sorry if it doesn't work for you, but I can confirm that exiting Steamworked for me. The problem is very repeatable.

    • Connect and disconnect controller
    • Sleep and wake up system
    • Xbox One Wireless controller connects (as shown in the "Game Controllers" panel) and disconnects within 2 seconds.
    • Exit Steam
    • Xbox One Wireless controller connects and works.
    • Restart Steam (controller still works)
    • Disconnect Xbox One Wireless controller, then connects and disconnects within 2 seconds.
    I'm narrowing my problem down to the Big Picture mode, so that problem is for another forum...

    Hopefully this workaround helps a few people before the real solution is found.
