    [VIVE] Actively detect when controllers power on and off?

    Maybe I'm searching using the wrong words, but why can't I find any documentation on this?

    It's rather annoying to have an inactive controller just frozen in place. I'd like to be able to handle it more gracefully.

    Anyone know how?

    I am not a VIVE specialist but wouldn't this return FALSE if the controllers are turned off?

    You can give it a try and see if this is indeed the case.

          I think that might fire off when the sensors lose the controller for a second due to lag or obstruction. It looks like you're only fiddling with visibility and I think the end result will be the preferred one but you may want to keep that in mind if you expand on that function.
