I’ve recently set up RetroPie and have been using it with a pair of wireless Dualshock3 controllers, and one problem I have is that because I don’t turn off the Pi, the controllers will stay linked until they run out of battery. Has anyone figured out a way to check controllers for inactivity and kill the Bluetooth connection after a set amount of time?dishinsParticipant09/22/2015 at 04:30Post count: 47
hold your PS button for 5 seconds, the controller will shut off and the bluetooth dongle will get back to pscan state.Billy T. PilgrimParticipant09/23/2015 at 14:20Post count: 39
In addition, have a look in /var/lib/sixad/profiles. There will be a file in there called default, and possibly other(s) with the MAC addresses of your controller(s). If you edit these files with a text editor, you can set the amount of time before the controller powers off. The line you need to add (or change, if it’s already there) is this:
Just replace the number with the number of minutes of inactivity you want before the controller shuts off – I usually use 5.
