What you need to do is keep holding the button and after a few seconds the pad will turn off. If it doesn't seem to be turning off, keep holding the button anyway, it takes longer than you'd expect.

Re: Turning off ps3 controller

Hey people I found out this cool feature to turn off the controller without going to the xmb/menu....To turn it off just hold the os button for like 10 seconds and the controller will go to sleep...lol....Cheers...


Pretty useful while watchin a movie.

I never knew about this though it's doubtful I'll ever use it because it's actually quicker to press the PS button and then select Turn Off Controller :Cool: :smileytongue:

Only reason it's good for me is because i have the PS3 and PC hooked up to the same monitor, so if i just want to listen to music on my PS3 i'll dual screen my PC and won't be able to see the PS3 screen. So now i can turn controller off pause and skip tracks without needing to look at anything :smileyvery-happy:

Other than that it's slower than usual like others have said. Nice to find neat little tricks about the PS3 though.
