    Hey guys, just hacked my switch a few days ago and I've noticed it will no longer wake from sleep mode. i just get a black screen and i'll have to hold down the power button for a bit before it'll reboot. i remember this was a problem in the "'early days" of switch hacking but was supposedly fixed months ago? i must have missed a step when i was setting everything up i guess? im using ReiNX with the Darth Meteos pack. i believe im on 5.1.0 and i dont use autoRCM.

    any ideas? Thanks.

    EDIT: MY PROBLEM WAS BECAUSE I WAS LEAVING THE JIG IN WHILE DOCKED!
    SWITCH WONT WAKE FROM SLEEP WITH THE JIG IN! >_<

    ReiNX has sleep mode issues, you will have to either deal with it or use a paid CFW.

    If you're having issues with ReiNX, then just download SDFiles from Tumger's github repo. I haven't encountered any issues with that so far.

    Ah, I always thought that was how the Switch was supposed to be. Even when my Switch was brand new, it never woke instantly out of sleep mode. I always end up needing to press a button multiple times, and it can take 5 seconds or so to wake.

    Did your unit used to respond instantly whenever you pressed a button to wake it up?

    Hey, I have the same situation as you. I did the hack last week. I also have 5.1.0, ReiNX, Dark Meteos's SD Files 3.0.
    When I put my switch to sleep, then come back to it after a few hours, pressing the power button once will not do anything.
    However, pressing it AGAIN, will wake up the Switch. Yes, you may have to tap the power button 2x (1 second interval) to wake it up.
