    I just got my DS4 working with my PC via bluetooth dongle but wondering if there is a way to turn off the console when I’m not using it (AFK) and save battery?

      While pressing and holding the SHARE button, press and hold the PS Button until the light bar flashes. Enable Bluetooth on your device, and then select the controller from the list of Bluetooth devices.

    My controller was Bluetooth-connected to my PC, but it won’t work with my PS4 anymore. Everything I did, including turning off Bluetooth on the computer and connecting the controller to the PS4 via wire, failed. How can I re-connect my controller to my PlayStation 4?

      Go to (Settings) > [Devices] > [Turn Off Device] to turn off Bluetooth® devices linked to your PS4 system, such as controllers or keyboards.
