So I've been using this driver for a few months with the Xbox 360 Wireless Controller For Windows with my Mac Mini. Here's an article about the driver on Gizmodo. The driver works really well for actually using the controller, but there doesn't seem to be a way to power off the controller without pulling the batteries. Does anyone know of a replacement driver that includes power-off capabilities, or know of some other undocumented way to turn the controller off?

Note: I've been having problems getting to the site, but it could be our corporate filtering.

I can still download the driver and get to the site, can you please explain the site does not exists? –  Diago Jul 31 '09 at 15:14
    
Hmmm, maybe it's our web content filtering at work, then... –  Bob King Jul 31 '09 at 15:39

I take off the battery pack and put it back on (seriously). However, this is more difficult if you use AA batteries rather than the play and charge pack.

I was hoping for something more elegant. Unfortunately this seems like a workaround. –  Bob King Jul 31 '09 at 15:40
