Windows problem, little bit of "Googling" and found this:

  1. Click Start and type Device Manager in Start Search.
  2. Expand the Gamepad Device and right click the device and click Properties.
  3. Click Power Management Tab.
  4. Put a check mark for “Allow this device to wake the computer” and uncheck the option “allow the computer to turn off the device to save power”.
  5. Click OK.

Mass closing ancient tickets with no activity for > 12 months; assume fixed or too trivial.

If this issue is still relevant in current dev build, please re-post.
