    I have installed SX OS on my Switch and noticed, after turning it off last night, that it had turned itself on again at some point during the night and now had only 30% battery left.
    Is there some kind of way to make sure the device actually stays off?

    Removing AutoRCM should do the trick

    Perhaps so, but i installed it to lessen the likelihood of damaging my joycon pins.

    because you just need to touch the power button or connect the switch to power and the unit will turn on. If autoRCM is enabled, the device will turn on without any visible sign (screen stays blank) and it wont charge in RCM mode.

    That I know, I just never heard anyone reporting that the console would turn on by it self lol...

    So he probably put the power cable in it or just touched power button ;).

    I thought it really turned ON by it self...

    Nah, it does turn itself on after shutting down Horizon OS completely. That's what all the battery issue threads with autorcm were about.

    Like the other users suggested, just put it into sleep mode.

    Wait, what? Why does it do that? What triggers the power on state, here?

    There might be more to it if users like the one below aren't having those issues. There are other factors such as CFW, version of AutoRCM used, version of briccmii used, etc.

    :teach:uninstall SX's AutoRCM and install AutoRCM with Briccmii v2:teach:
    I feel like im one of the few that have 0 battery drain issues.. Switch was off all day and is still at 70% where I left it. So not sure what else I can say if people still have the issue?

    Also, if my switch booted into RCM mode randomly today my switch would have booted into horizon anyways since I just leave the dongle in when im not using it....

    do this:
    1. turn off in switch power menu.
    2. boot up sx os menu again.
    3. select power off in it.

    autorcm will cause switch boot up automatically about 10s or so after power off in horizon power menu.
    manually power off it in bootloader menu again is required.

    1. Install Briccmii v2 and make sure cust_data is correct
    2. shut off switch

    Just a hunch but some people might be choosing to power it off while it is still docked which does not actually turn it off but it boots it back into RCM. If I remember tomorrow morning, I could test this out with powering off after leaving it in handheld mode after lunch then powering off it after leaving it docked before bed.

    any kinds of power supply will "wake" up the switch from off state.
    switch just like apple device(iphone, ipad), it does not remain off while charging. it will always boot into os unless battery is at critical level.

    Actions speak louder than words. But you're right, its probably sapping the battery for those who leave it docked.

    Wtf, that's even worse than I thought as everyone reporting battery depleted mostly were said to have forgotten and left the console in RCM mode thinking it was off...

    Are you sure this is not another battery desync problem instead?

    I'm not even understanding why it's triggering a power on from a complete power off unless the CFW is not actually fully turning it off completely.


    Does this problem happens even if you press power button for like 12+ seconds instead of using software turn off feature???

    If from horizon you keep the button pressed until the system turns off, the problem still persists

    Now if Im not mistaken, if during RCM you keep the button pressed during around 12 seconds, the system fully turns off and stop draining battery

    Oh this happened to me 2 times too and I thought I was going crazy lol because I was sure I power off the console almost full battery but when I tried to power it on it was with no battery left.
