That isn't the way the PS4 handles it. Set the controllers to turn off after 10 minutes, and they will turn off after 10 minutes. The caveat is that you can't jostle them, or they'll re-start their 10 minute countdown timer, because they'll detect the motion as "using" the controller. So put them down on a stable surface like the floor or a table. If you leave them in your lap or on the couch, they'll likely never turn off.

That may be why mine second one stays on...maybe. It's easy enough to manually shutoff now since that patch, months ago, without disturbing Netflix so meh, non issue.

Which is why we need a PS4 remote for movies and apps.

Ok, I'll try the flat surface thing and see if it works.



Big Brad - Yeah, I can admit to overreacting a bit. It's just been a really irritating thing that I've had to deal with the last couple of days. I know it seems like such a small thing, but sometimes it's the little things that can drive you crazy.

Why not get one of those chargers where you can charge two controllers at once? Heck, why not get two so you can have 4 controllers charged. That way you'll always have a controller ready to go. Problem solved.

I think it's a fair criticism, people shouldn't have to keep their controllers constantly docked to watch Netflix because the ds4 has a tiny battery, poor power management and Sony hasn't seen fit to bless us with remote support.
