Actually, touch controllers turn off the second you unplug your oculus. If you keep your oculus plugged in, the touch controllers will go on stand by and will eventually turn off.
Yes, the controllers will go to sleep when not in use.
Or is there a way to turn them off. Because if they're on all this time that I'm not even using the rift, they will use alll the battery power. So how does it work?
