    Thank you for your suggestion but controller still turns off even when plugged in after it's been idle for 15 min.

    Xbox One Controlling itself on Idle

    Hi,

    your controller was off or idle? if it was idle then there is a chance that ur controller is having auto stick drift issue, in this case u can either send for warranty (if u still have) or, u can open up the controller & check there is a small clip attached
    to both analog sticks, try fixing them into correct position (you can check some youtube guideline videos for this),

    The controller update bricked my controller.

    I forgot to mention in my previous reply that my update went fine on my controller. When it went idle and I turned it back on it was now a brick, only the center button worked, same problem everyone else has. I called support, no joy, not our problem. So
    now I'm paranoid the other 2 controllers will do the same if allowed to go idle

    Xbox controller turns off

    Usually if you plug the controller in, it will stay on. But if it's still turning off, it sounds like it's just turning off due to idle time where it naturally powers off if you haven't touched the controller in a few minutes. If you want to afk in a game,
    what everyone does is place your character in the game in a position where you can press forward indefinitely (or any other direction) like maybe pushing your character up against a wall, and people use something else like a book or a rubber band to hold
    the controller stick going forward (like walking into a wall, so nothing actually happens in your game) and they leave the controller like that. It keeps an action going, so your controller never idles out and turns off on you, but you can leave it afk if
    you wish to. Just make sure that nothing you are afk'ing would be voilating any ToS, such as doing this in a Multi-Player game where people join a lobby and then go afk and not actually do anything to help their team, but rather just 'be there' to get XP etc.
    Hope that helps! :)
