First, let me say, I've had my Oculus Rift for several years and I've never had this problem with it. Suddenly, in the past month or so, any time the Rift is slightly touched, it's cord is slightly jiggled, or anything moves anywhere near it, my screen goes black for several seconds and Oculus Home launches. I get annoyed, close Oculus Home, and wait through several more seconds of black screen while it closes before I can go back to what I was doing, only to have it happen again and again and again whenever anything slightly touches the headset or its cord.
Since I know you'll ask (having read the other discussions here), I keep the Rift headset on the floor, off to the side of my desk, about 3 feet away from me and my chair. I've had it in that spot for years and have only just started having this problem very recently.
TO BE CLEAR: I'm not picking up the headset and not moving the headset (besides MAYBE the tiniest of bumps occasionally, equivalent to a small tap of the finger on its side while it sits, face-down, on my floor). Most of the time, this happens when, e.g., the cord of my regular headphones brushes up against the cord of the Rift (which causes the Rift to move VERY slightly because physics).
What I'm looking for is either (a) a way to dial down the sensitivity of the headset movement that causes Oculus Home to start (not likely, I know), or (b) a way to tell Oculus Home NOT to launch when the headset is moved (which SHOULD be extremely likely).
I've searched through the forums and support, but all I'm finding are people who want to stop Home auto-starting when Steam opens (a problem I don't have). The one guy who had a similar question to mine was looking to keep it from auto-starting even though he had the Rift on his head. I just want mine to be able to sit on the floor near my desk without every slight jiggle of cord or movement in the vicinity of the Rift starting Home. It's getting REALLY frustrating.
And, yes, I know there will be some snarky person here who will suggest I move it away from any cords or anything that might touch it. I get that. I could do (and probably will try it) BUT we're not talking about significant movements and, either way, I shouldn't have to. I should be able to tell my computer or the Rift to not launch software every time the cord is bumped.
Am I wrong that it was not this sensitive before? I've not had this problem until sometime in the past 30 days or so.
Any help anyone can offer on this would be most appreciated. After searching these forums for various phrases relating to my issue, I found 100 pages (totaling 1000 results). Reading through as many as I could take, all the ones I saw had to do with stopping auto start on Steam launch, not on movement of the headset. So, here I am.
Thanks in advance for any advice, help, or helpful fingers pointing in the right direction.
