    Xbox PC Controller Adapter Requires being unplugged/replugged every wake from sleep to function

    This is an issue that has been plaguing this device for years as seen by old forum posts:

    1) https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/xbox/forum/all/xbox-one-wireless-adapter-windows-disconnecting/1b26971e-c653-47e6-8762-7887a04cc32f

    2) https://xbox-forums.com/threads/xbox-one-wireless-adapter-for-windows-has-to-be-unplugged-and-replugged-each-time-i-wake-my.449775/

    I've tried all of the steps in responses from support on those two threads with minimal success.

    I would love some additional help if there is a more recent solution other than sending me a replacement unit...

    :)

    Xbox One controller on Win 10 Forgets the Xbox Adapter for Windows

    For pairing problems, as I mentioned above one quick and easy way to get the device paired is to plug in an adapter, then plug in your controller through a wired USB. The driver stack will automatically pair it to the plugged in adapter so that when you
    unplug the wired controller, it will bind to the adapter. This is exactly how it is on the Xbox console.

    Regarding not syncing after say a reboot, please bear in mind though that the controller can only "remember" one adapter at a time, which means plugging in to a console or binding/pairing to a console or to another PC adapter, will erase the controller's
    memory of the adapter it was originally bound to.

    Usually if the controller has not been repaired, an unplug/replug of the adapter is enough to reset it.

    Xbox One controller on Win 10 Forgets the Xbox Adapter for Windows

    Old Post, same issue. I have to unplug and replug in my adapter almost every reboot. Is MS really not aware of this? Is there truely no work around?

    The 360 controller adapter is cheaper and works reliably 100% of the time. I just don't understand why this hasn't been addressed.

    Xbox One Windows 10 Wireless Adapter Issues

    To the OPs problem for no sound and no vibration that should be fixed with the latest driver updates.

    For pairing, how are you pairing the controller? I have mentioned this on other posts, one easy alternate way to pair is to have your controller connected wired to the PC, plug in the Wireless Adapter to the PC as well, wait like 5 seconds, and unplug the
    controller, the driver stack will automatically have paired the controller to the adapter, just like on the Xbox.

    Once you pair the controller successfully and never use that controller for any other PC or Xbox, then the address of the adapter is saved in the controller. Repairing to the same adapter is not required. If it is not connecting, plug/unplug the adapter
    instead to reset the adapter.

    We are working with our partners to address some of the major issues.

    Xbox One controller on Win 10 Forgets the Xbox Adapter for Windows

    I am having exactly the same problem as you ChaiKootha and it is driving me absolutely nuts. It doesn't happen for me on every power cycle. It seems to happen after the computer has been left shut down for a good few hours. Almost like some charge inside
    the adapter goes out and then it forgets the controller's connection to the PC. It is very immersion breaking having to unplug and replug the adapter everytime this happens to get the controller to resync. I am wondering if you ever managed to resolve this?
