I've been using MotionInJoy for quite a while in order to use my PS3's controller as a gamepad, but have never been able to overcome a very serious issue I'm having with this setup.
I never shut my computer down, as I prefer to have it hibernate (I'm on Win7 64-bit, by the way). However, whenever I hibernate my machine with my PS3 controller plugged in after having used it as a gamepad, I am always greeted by a blue screen of death when turning my machine back on. The only way I've found to avoid this so far is to safely turn off the controller and then physically disconnect it from my computer before hibernating.
There are two main disadvantages to "solving" the problem this way:
- It's a hassle.
- It's something you can forget to do.
I'm looking for a proper solution, where this issue would be resolved permanently without the requirement of constant fidgeting. I've tried snooping around online but all I could find were some confirmations of the problem back from the end of 2010, so I'm wide open for suggestions.
