As the title says, that's exactly what happens. I'm trying to hack my switch; I follow all the steps, and get my console in RCM mode, but when I connect it to my computer in order to run the payload, it turns on automatically. What happens? How can I fix this?

Then... How can I stop it from turning on, so that I'm able to run the payload?
You don't.
Hold the volume button up + insert the jig, then insert your cable into the Switch.
Now the Switch is in RCM mode. You can send your payload now.

If it turns on it means that it didn't enter rcm mode, in other words, your jig/tin foil/paperclip didn't work. If you're sure it's working try pressing + and power longer.

Cool, now I've got another problem. My computer won't recognize my switch. It does have USB 3 ports...
