defective xbox 360 controller?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

wired to a pc. for a year i wondered what prevented multiple displays on multiple computers from auto powering down. or the screensaver. it will constantly randomly wake back up. i finally figured out what it is. do you think the controller is a defective one or a known problem with it? or perhaps something with microsofts software. that is all that is loaded, the driver. i could get another but i will be miffed if it is the same issue. i googled this and nothing came up. nonethelsss, i am happy i finally figured it out. for a long time i blamed it on the poor g500. which it turned out not to be. i was sure it was a usb device though. there is no option to turn off "wake" on the 360 controller like other devices.

 

thanks.

lo and behold. searched all over the net. found some non discript update on ms site. seems to have fixed it. too soon to tell for sure though. hmm. after all this time. i wonder what the toll on my display was.

 

edit: software did not fix it. it remains unplugged right now. i will see about getting a replacement. if in fact it is not a bug in the device rather than a defective unit.
