This Reddit article sums it up: Why isn't there a wireless controller that can wake a PC up?
When I play games in Steam, my computer doesn't recognize that I'm mashing buttons and it goes into sleep/suspend mode. I don't want to disable power management or use wake on LAN. Is there any other way to get my computer to recognize my gamepad's input and not go to sleep? I'd also like to wake my HTPC with the controller.
The Logitech F710 and the Xbox 360 wireless controller are HID-compliant in Windows but not Linux (see screenshots below). FYI, the Logitech F710 is HID-compliant in Xinput mode, but not in Directinput modes.
I ran "lsusb -v" and have screenshots below for the mouse, Logitech F710, and the Xbox 360 wireless controller. This shows how the mouse registers as a HID-compliant device and how the controllers don't.
I'm running Ubuntu 15.04 with the LXDE desktop on my Kodi/Steam-box. My motherboard is an Asus 990fx r2.0, which only has "Power On By PME Device" and "Power On By Ring" (I've enabled both). The bios also has "Power On By RTC" but that's disabled. I've also plugged the controllers into USB3 and USB5 (the two USB "devices" that have enabled S-states). Still no joy.

Why aren't the controllers registering as HID-compliant devices?
