    I know the title sounds like "Everytime i put my switch in sleep mode while in SXOS CFW battery dies". But it's just a simple question :

    Description:
    I went on holidays today, will be back in 2 weeks. I left my switch at home in sleep mode while in SXOS CFW. Auto rcm off, wifi off, no game playing in background, joycons attached.

    Question: If my switch's battery reaches 0%(dies) while in sleep mode, in SXOS cfw(I've said it 4 times), will something bad happen?

    Will I just need to plug the charger for a while, and then send a payload?

    In general you just recharge your switch and then start it either in OFW or in CFW as you like. There should not be any problems when auto rcm is off.

    I have this one. TX RCM injector is not powerfull enough to boot console to payload when battery is drained. Try this

    If auto-rcm is off, why would you need a payload? Just charge/turn on your switch. If auto-rcm is on the battery will still charge, just more slowly. So just wait till you have enough(can be around 20-30 mins if i remember maybe more) then just send a payload. Either way it should not be a problem.
    The SX pro will work fine... if that is what you use. Just spend a fair while charging your switch.

    If auto rcm is off and you put your console in sleep mode, it will automatically turn itself off when the battery level reach 10%.
    So no worries.

    I've never heard of that. In SXOS right? EmmuNand right? Cfw right? Just making sure. If it autoturns off, can I turn it on while still being 10%? Or do I need to charge it first and then send a payload?

    I'm using SXOS with emunand and at some time left it for weeks in sleep mode. When I try to wake it up by pushing the home button like I usually do, it didn't. So I turn it on and push the payload like I usually do and the battery was at 10% charge left.
    You can just charge it before turning it on. I turned it on before charging before just to see how much battery is left.
    And auto shut down isn't sxos feature, but the original os, horizon's feature. Anything horizon can do, cfw also can do.
    Only problem is, with auto rcm enable, even if it will auto shut down, it will still drain the battery because it will not completely turned off.

    if the battery is too low, your switch will show the nintendo logo and turn off sometimes. It has happened to me before. I was really worried because i thought it was bricked, just turned out it needed a slightly higher %.

    Source? I've been using Switch for over 3 years, currently own 3 systems, and have been researching HOS stuff for around 2 years but have never seen/heard of this.
